This is just the most amazing book. It is beautifully produced with amazingly detailed pop-ups and informative, concise, interesting text. Then there are the little books with even more fantastic pop-ups on every page. I have never seen such a wonderful creation. I bought it as a Christmas present for a five year old who loves dinosaurs but it should become an heirloom. I would be pleased to receive it myself! How on earth can this wonder be produced for the price?

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!!!!!

Can't stress how amazing the quality of the Pop-Ups are in this book.
Also have to mention, just cos you get one in the set (they have other books too, such as one on fairies) doesn't mean they are all as good as each other. We got the "Fairies and Magical Creatures" one too and weren't impressed with the written content. Sure it's about the pop-ups, but it's incomplete for a growing child without decent content.
Kids really loved the dinosaur one in her class (she was 5 when we bought it) and also.. do take note, don't buy it used. These pop-ups are gorgeously artistic but quite delicate. We bought the fairy one used and not all the Pop-Ups closed properly and I thought it might just be a simple repositioning, but I couldn't fix them.
So.. all in all - thumbs up for the Dino one - educational, entertaining and breathtaking :)
