Product Description

Review

Praise for Creatures Yesterday and Today:
“Vibrant colors (greens, blues, purples and vivid yellows and pinks) characterize these very simple, yet, at once, subtly detailed illustrations. Through her use of light and shadow, Patkau creates depth in her paintings, causing the eye to move across each one. A map of the world on the end papers indicates the location of each featured animal, while a geological time line shows when the various creatures lived on Earth. Included at the back of the book is a glossary.” Highly Recommended — Canadian Review of Materials

“ …the amazing science will engage dinosaur fans with the wonder of evolution and the evidence of fossils. A time chart and a world map showing the distribution of the prehistoric creatures and fossils wrap up the text, which will be wonderful for beginning classroom science discussions.”
Booklist

“Patkau combines what is clearly a love for animals with her considerable talents as a dimensional artist in this companion to the celebrated Creatures Great and Small…. Maps, a timeline, a history chart and a glossary give an educational edge to a glorious picture book.”
The Chronicle Herald

Praise for Creatures Great and Small:
Creatures Great and Small is a book that uses every possible surface to inform and impress the reader.” — Quill & Quire

“This book bombards readers with something new on every page. Patkau’s illustrations are vibrant and have a distinct layering quality that makes them look three dimensional.”
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax

HASH(0xa33002b8) out of 5 stars Lively reading about prehistoric animals June 15 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Karen Patkau's CREATURES YESTERDAY AND TODAY offers a companion to CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL but stands alone as a survey of animals which disappeared in prehistoric times. Maps, time lines, history and first-person animal descriptions make for lively reading about prehistoric animals.
