Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–Informational tidbits appear alongside exquisitely designed pop-up constructions in this visually stunning overview of all things dinosaur. Each spread features a spectacular paper sculpture of a particular species (e.g., Ankylosaurus or Triceratops) along with a brief paragraph of text. Smaller foldout sections, which open like miniature books and also incorporate pop-ups, cover additional topics (Dinosaur Detectives and Mystery Extinction) and introduce other dinosaurs and their characteristics. Rendered in warm earth tones and speckled with splashes of color, the three-dimensional creatures move with a life of their own as they gracefully extend their bodies into a full stretch or lurch toward readers with jaws open wide. Be forewarned: the book is so enticing that children will find it impossible to keep their hands off it, possibly causing problems with the delicate pop-ups.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. With Sabuda lending deft paper engineering to artwork rendered by Reinhart, who also wrote this book's text, the Mesozoic's major players leap into three dimensions. Pop-ups featured on the six spreads include a gargantuan brachiosaurus; an anklyosaurus studded with paper spikes; and, perhaps most impressive from a technical standpoint, a minutely detailed T. rex skeleton. Each spread also contains as many as four foldout minibooks, bristling with their own tiny pops. The brief paragraphs of text never go much beyond cute sound bites ("Was It a Can Opener?" asks one headline, referring to the einosaurus' hooked nose horn), and the abstract, textured style in which the pop elements are painted may frustrate some children's efforts to imagine how the oddly angled assemblages translate into real beasts. Information about whether the bold color schemes spring from fact or simple aesthetics would have been a plus. Will these problems prevent this from being gobbled up as voraciously as one spread's allosaurus tucks into a lump of dino flesh? Not on your life. Jennifer Mattson

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT A BOOK!! It’s an experience! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
By MommaB on March 16, 2018
Utterly GORGEOUS, modernesque dinosaurs literally leap off the pages of this beautifully and intricately composed book. I’ve never wanted to shake the hand of a children’s book author before, but I just may seek these people out to express gratitude and awe at what was accomplished here.

We received this only today, but I couldn’t help but make a video for all of you who may be hesitant to spend nearly $30 (depending on current pricing) on a book — it is worth every single penny and more! The size is smaller than I expected but I didn’t read description very well after seeing the pop-ups! As you can see, the main pop-up featured dinos are surrounded by complementary artwork. Some of the sidebars even have two pages to them, just adding to my amazement of how well this book is composed. Each animal is properly labeled with correct spelling and the text gives a brief but thorough description.

All of my kids were amazed by this book, and they range in age from 17 years to 20 months. The squeals elicited from my baby boys upon seeing their favorite “T-Wex” and “Bakkasaurus” was heartwarming to say the least. I had to stop them from giving the T-Rex a drink (because duh, Mom, he’s red so he’s hot) and serving the raptors their chicken nuggets, but it’s all worth the giggles and smiles!

I typically write long, drawn-out reviews highlighting “pros” and “cons,” but for once, I am nearly speechless. Just look at the photos and video and you’ll see why.

This is not to be handled by little ones, obviously, but the other pop-ups we have don’t hold a candle to this one. It is both educational and beautiful, and will be a book passed on for generations I’m sure. Highly, loftily, even aggressively recommended!! 😁

*I feel I should add that there was no compensation, discount, or request for a review. Of the thousands of items I’ve purchased on Amazon for my babies this is, hands-down, #1 with zero bias.

I hope this was helpful, even with all the gushing!
