This book is no exception. It is grand to look at, colorful (unlike his white works), and the largeness of his Pop-ups makes you feel the sharks are coming off the page.
I would not classify this book as for kids. Its not a fun read, there is no story. Its an encyclopedia, with facts about pehistoric sea creatures. The pop-ups in some places dont go back nicely, and it might take a delicate touch, something that isnt found in your average 6 year old.
IM not saying that it isnt a book for a child. In fact my 6 year old dinosaur loving daughter LOVES this book, but since dad is a collector of pop-ups, we treat it carefully and read it together.
A great book, but consider who you are buying it for.
You're wrong. It is better. Holy moly, it's even better. All the pop-ups REAR out of the book at you. They practically take a bite out of you. The Jaws theme practically plays. Every single page is amazing, and the popups are bigger than ever, more plentiful than ever, more intricate than ever.
Calling this a pop-up book just doesn't do this justice. Even "magnificent paper engineering" doesn't do this justice. This is wonderful voo-doo magic. That's what this is.
Highly entertaining, and highly recommended.
This book is a masterpiece of the pop-up genre. It's twelve pages generally contain a major and a minor pop-up. Our favorite is the shark on the third page you get to where the shark bites as you open and close the book. Of course you have to supply the tiny fingers for the shark to bite.
In addition each of the pages has another folded out page or two that have additional pop-ups. All a masterpiece of paper engineering.
Kids at that age seem to all have a fascination with big dangerous creachers, especially since they know they are home and safe from the big teeth.
The pop-ups of all 3 PREHISTORICA ENCYCLOPEDIA books including SHARKS AND OTHER SEA MONSTERS are painted in a streamlined style that reminds me of FANTASIA'S dinosaurs and pleiosaurs. The first 2 page spread has a mini pop-up underneath a prehistoric lobster, that depicts early amphibians, fish and insects in the Paleozoic era before the Meseizoic age of dinosaurs! It even has a frosted plastic in front of the sea creatures to give the effect of being underwater! The next mini page shows pleiosaurs in the water and pteradactyls in the air of the dinosaur age and then the last pages depicted a huge megalodon shark attacking a whale! All this in just this little first pop-up!! WOW!! The next pages display a gigantic crocadile named sarccsuchus that wheighed more then 8 tons and is shown leaping out the water about to swallow an unlucky dino trying to get away!! As I pull open the pages the jaws of the giant gator are closing in on the pop-up dino!Read more ›
The only real problem is that now I want my own copy!
