Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book is written in the lively and informative style of Aliki's Digging Up Dinosaurs and Dinosaurs Are Different, with the added personal perspective of My Visit to the Dinosaurs. Here Aliki helps children understand that our knowledge of dinosaurs began less than 200 years ago, when Mary Ann Mantell discovered fossilized dinosaur teeth in a pile of rocks near an English quarry. The major findings of other scientists are included as well. Aliki has a perfect sense of just which details will most delight her readers: dinosaur footprints, a banquet held inside a life-size dinosaur model. Full-color illustrations of curious, questioning people and their discoveries make a treasure hunt of this fact-filled volume. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 There's nothing intrinsically wrong with this latest Aliki contribution to dinomania; it's just that it all seems a bit familiar. Some of the information appears to be culled from Ali ki's earlier (and admittedly, drabber) books. Other pages seem similar in con tent to Aliki's more recent volumes. Still, she has managed to provide a sim plified explanation of the history of paleontology in a format that even pre schoolers will comprehend. She reiterates much basic information about the separation of the continents, earth's time periods, and how scientists reconstruct dinosaurs from fossilized bones. Little information is provided about more recent dinosaur discoveries. Like the text, the illustrations in this book are reminiscent of other recent Aliki books on prehistoric life. Overall, this is a good book, but one which may duplicate information avail able in others. Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library

More About the Author

Aliki is the author and illustrator of more than fifty books for children that are treasured by readers all over the world. Her many well-loved titles include My Visit to the Zoo, My Visit to the Aquarium, My Visit to the Dinosaurs, Wild and Woolly Mammoths, Tabby, and Those Summers. Aliki lives near the Globe theater, in London, England.

In Her Own Words..."Aliki grew up in Philadelphia in a big Greek family where everyone was busy creating and sharing their activities. She knew from the time she was in kindergarten that she wanted to bean artist, although music was also a natural talent. She was encouraged throughout her early life by her parents and by teachers she will never forget."She graduated from the Philadelphia Collegeof Art and started a career in advertising art. After she married Franz Brandenberg, Aliki continued her career in his country, Switzerland, where they lived for three years. It was there that she wrote and illustrated her first book, The Story of William Tell, which was published in England. When they moved to New York, Aliki wrote and illustrated My Five Senses--the book that changed the direction of her career and her life.

Although she had never thought of being a writer, Aliki has been making books ever since. Children's books, she says, are a combination of two things I love: words and pictures. I also love the privacy of books--both reading them and making them. Aliki writes fiction, in which she can express her feelings, and nonfiction research books about subjects she's interested in and wants to know more about. Each book is a new challenge; each is different, she says. The subject directs the way I illustrate a book, the same way friends bring out different parts of us. The challenge is to get the words right and then to make pictures that expand and enhance their meaning.""Besides her own books, Aliki has illustrated many written by Franz Brandenberg and other authors. Her two children are also in the arts. Jason is a filmmaker and Alexa is a children's book author-illustrator. They appear in almost all of her books as cats, mice, or themselves.

Aliki loves music, theater, cinema, museums, children, her cat, Nefertiti, and working in her garden in London, where she lives. She travels frequently to the U.S., Greece, Switzerland, and other parts of the world, though most of the time she is alone in her studio with the books she is working on--and Mozart."
