Product Description

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

Sabuda's Pop-up books are a constantly source of amazement for me and my kids. I am full of admiration for the skill and intricate detail that goes into creating these masterpieces. But it's not only the pop-up art that I like about Encyclopedia Prehistorica. I think it is also a great idea to educate our "little darlings" in this charming and humorous way. As birthday gifts for my other two kids I have also bought Sabuda's "Alice in Wonderland" and first two books from Nowiki's series "Why Some Cats are Rascals" - charming, educational stories with a lot of information from the world of felines and more.

I saw this book at my nephews house and purchased One for my 2.5 year old daughter then, and two more later on. One for myself and one for gift for my other nephew who loves dinosaurs. Perfect gift for any children love dinosaurs. Kids just love it. Although I think appropriate age is 3 and up, since the little fingers could be a bit too rough on some delicate pop-ups.
Opening the pages make the big pop-ups come alive and the little pages on the sides have smaller pop-ups with more information as well. The pop up artwork is beautiful and the contents are very interesting for young minds and adults all the same. Highly recommended.

This book is a work of art and a thing of delight. It is not a traditional pop-up book-- the moving elements are large and intricate. Brachiosaurus rises 6 inches out of the book, surrounded by trees and a tiny man. T rex's jaws open at you and you can see right down his throat. A beautiful blue-green archeopteryx lifts off the page. My favorite is the tiny volcano which erupts tiny paper lava. And, sturdy enough for my 4-year old. Could not reccomend more highly

Fantastic book, this is piece of art. After receiving one as a gift, I've purchased 2 more as gift for friends' kids. My 3 year old loves to look a the big pop-up dinosaurs on every page. It probably takes a 5+ year old to appreciate the smaller foldouts with popup dinosaurs available on every page.

Robert Sabuda is one of the greats when it comes to pop up books.
Each page is an adventure all in itself.
The pop ups come alive on each page. One of my favorite books
Would recommend for children and adults of all ages.

This is an extraordinary book, beautifully crafted. My 10 year old grandson, the future palaeontologist, was simply blown away. For anyone who loves dinosaurs, this is the book you must have!
