BOOK REVIEW

CHILDREN'S
Released: Aug. 1, 2005

"The topic will make this a crowd pleaser, but not even rabid dino or Sabuda fans are likely to pay it more than a single visit. (Nonfiction pop-up. 5-10)"
From capering Eoraptor, "the tiny terror of the early Triassic" to a ravening T. rex lunging up at viewers as its spread opens, this gallery of dinosaurs will elicit the "Ooooohs" of admiration that Sabuda's work always does, though it's not up to his usual standard, either visually or in paper design.

BOOK REVIEW

ANIMALS
Released: June 1, 2007

"The fur-clad cave painter beneath the final flap introduces the scariest predator of all, and provides an appropriate cap for this rousing, deservedly popular series. (Novelty/nonfiction. All ages)"
In this third and final gallery of prehistoric creatures (the authors have announced that they'll be delving into mythology next), the "titanic pterosaur" quetzalcoatlus unfolds huge wings, saber-toothed smilodon lazily stretches out massively clawed paws, a glowering mastodon lunges headfirst toward the viewer and an array of other therapsids, early mammals, birds and insects lurk beneath layered flaps filled top to bottom with melodramatic captions and startling facts.
