Product description

Review

Don't just look at the brilliantly designed and executed pop-ups of more than 35 dinosaurs; the engaging text is also a great introduction to everyone's favorite extinct creatures.
--The New York Times Book Review

With so many layers and moving paper parts - water-colored on all sides - readers may begin to feel like paleontologists unearthing fossils. Dino fans won't be disappointed.
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

This triumph of paper technology prompts amazement both at Sabuda and Reinhart's creativity and at the magnificence of the creatures they portray.
--Horn Book, The

Informational tidbits appear alongside exquisitely designed pop-up constructions in this visually stunning overview of all things dinosaur.
--School Library Journal

With Sabuda lending deft paper engineering to artwork rendered by Reinhart, who also wrote the book's text, the Mesozoic's major players leap into three dimension.
--Booklist

Frills, spikes, wings, and horns burst from the pages of this pop-up book in fabulous, intricate symmetry.
--Entertainment Weekly

For our 5-year-old reviewer, it was all about the intricate pop-up designs of the snaggle-toothed theropod and spiny-backed stegosaur.
--Wall Street Journal

What's old (we're talking Mesozoic Era) is new again in Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart's knockout new pop-up book ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS. . . . In sharp, often humorous prose, the kings of pop-up deliver facts on more than 50 species that should impress even rabid dinophiles.
--FamilyFun

The Jurassic Age jumps off the page in ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS.
--Parents

This book defies categories. Robert Sabuda is readily acknowledged as the king of pop-ups, but Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart together have outdone themselves.
--Chicago Tribune

ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS covers shield bearers, frill heads, meat eaters and more with dozens of spectacular pop-ups tucked inside.
--Time Magazine

For readers looking for a provocative introduction to life millions of years ago, this superb volume offers instant appeal.
--Chicago Sun-Times

'Stunning' is a much overused word -- especially by book critics. Yet stunnig is truly the best way to describe ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS.
--Pittsburgh Post Gazette

In this ultimate pop-up paean to the giant reptiles of yore, a prodigious amount of dinosaur lore accompanies more than 35 astonishingly intricate 3-D illustrations by two renowned paper engineers.
--Child

This is a beautiful and artistic pop-up.
--Advocate, The (Baton Rouge)

Appealing to readers of almost all ages, thanks to the magical paper engineering of Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart.
--Denver Post

This dinosaur pop-up book is truly wonderful.
--Seattle Times

[A] mind-boggling compendium of all things dinosaur.
--Child Magazine's Best Children's Book Award

The definitive pop-up. That's what the cover bills, and that's what the book delivers.
--San Francisco Chronicle

A pictorial feast.
--Los Angeles Times
