Book Description

12 July 2005 Encyclopedia Prehistorica
From renowned pop-up masters Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart comes an awe-inspiring tribute to the world's most beloved extinct animals and their 180-million-year reign on our planet.

Open this book and a massive T. REX springs out, flashing a startling jawful of jagged teeth. Turn the next spread and a ravishing raptor unfurls and appears to fly off the edge of the page. Inside the amazing ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS are "shield bearers" in full-body armor, creatures with frilly headgear, and weighty, long-necked giants. There are even amusing tidbits on the history of paleontology itself — like a pop-up version of a Victorian New Year's dinner in the belly of a dinosaur model, or a pair of scientists locked in a literal tug-of-war over bones.

Full of fascinating facts and lighthearted good humor, this breathtaking book includes fascinating, up-to-the-minute information about popular dinosaurs as well as many lesser-known varieties. With each of six spreads featuring one spectacular, large pop-up as well as booklets of smaller pop-ups and text, ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS is a magnificent display of paper engineering and creativity — an astonishing book that will be read, admired, and treasured forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 28 Feb 2006
By Johnentwistlespout VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This is just a staggering book, I just can't believe they can manufacture it for the price. Every page has one incredibly detailed pop-up dinosaur and a number of mini-books which in turn open up to reveal their own tiny, detailed constructions. There are also lots of educational facts which separate it from being just another pop up book. My 4 1/2 year old son absolutely loves it, and I'm sure he will do for many years to come. I can't stress enough how well put together this is - amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Breathtaking! 24 April 2008
Format:Hardcover
I have just received this book from Amazon this morning and couldn't believe just how beautiful it is.So often with books I have read reviews and been slightly disappointed by the real thing-not so today. It is superbly made with stunning pop-ups and small chunks of accessible text by way of small information books -all with their own pop-ups.My children aged 7 and 4 have absolutely loved it and I am on here to order some more copies as birthday presents.A book that will be treasured!

5.0 out of 5 stars Faultless pop-up book! 15 Mar 2009
By Miss K TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The pop-ups in this book are absolutely flawless! There are lots of pop-up books out there with really poor pop-up mechanisms that really don't function well or get stuck every time you open or close a page - not a problem here! Also, Robert Sabuda's books are always great from an aesthetic point of view because they are so complex and a wonder to look at.

Dinosaur fans will really appreciate this book as not only is it a visual delight for readers with over thirty five pop-ups contained within its modest 12 pages but the book is also full of historical facts and interesting bits of information! Really great and would be perfect as a gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaurs pop to life! 1 Mar 2006
By Nuccia
Format:Hardcover
A gorgeous wonder of a book. Robert Sabauda has outdone himself this time. My five-year old adores it and feels very big and accomplished to have his very own encyclopedia! Each page has mini-pop up books. At every reading, it seems there is something new to be discovered about dinosaurs. My son loves to just stare and dream at the pop-ups. The information is fascinating as well. This book is destined to be a classic, one that our family will treasure for a long while.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 11 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book is superb, if you know anyone interested in Dinosaurs buy it, don't hesitate, when you receive it you will see why. It's not suitable for children under 5/6 depending on the child as the pages are full of pop ups and could easily be damaged. But it is fantastic for children and adults alike. BUY IT!!!!!
