Product Details


“Hilarious but genuinely helpful. . .”
— Buzzfeed

“Ms. Levin has mastered the art of describing animals and their behavior in archly urban ways. . . a nifty idea carried out with humor and a deft touch.”
— Wall Street Journal

Look Big is the definitive guide for anyone who has ever wondered what to do in an animal encounter. With equal parts humor and sound advice, Rachel Levin provides all the info you need to defuse a major critter crisis. Just don’t run. Unless it’s an alligator.
— Christopher Keyes, editor of Outside magazine

“Journalist Levin gives well-researched advice for surviving run-ins with coyotes, bears, and moose, among other large animals, along with helpful tips, anecdotes, and charts for dealing with smaller critters, from bees to skunks. The illustrations make it the perfect coffee table book, while its small size means it also fits nicely in a backpack.”
— Real Simple

“. . . lays out expert tactics for encounters with animals of all shapes and sizes with wit.
— Martha Stewart Living

“Rachel Levin’s light-hearted read combines funny stories about wildlife encounters with facts and knowledgeable tips on what to do if you find yourself faced with any one of 50 North American creatures, from alligators to bed bugs. You’ll be ready to walk on the wild side in no time.
“This book both amused and empowered me. I’m now prepared to haze a goose or do hand-to-hand combat with a cougar . . . whatever it takes.”
– Jon Mooallem, author of Wild Ones and American Hippopotamus

“Levin takes a fun-filled, practical approach to dealing with all kinds of critters. . . Beyond being a simple and speedy reference book, the gorgeous and often humorous illustrations from Jeff Östberg make this fun to flip through, too. . . You’ll likely find yourself spending more time than you expected learning how to look big.”
— Mother Nature Network
