Summary Open this book and a massive T. Rex springs out, flashing a startling jawful of jagged teeth. Turn the next spread and a ravishing raptor unfurls and appears to fly off the edge of the page. Inside the amazing Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs are "shield bearers" in full-body armor, creatures with frilly headgear, and weighty, long-necked giants. There are even amusing tidbits on the history of paleontology itself-like a pop-up version of a Victorian New Year's dinner in the belly of a dinosaur model, or a pair of scientists locked in a literal tug-of-war over bones. Full of fascinating facts and lighthearted good humor, this breathtaking book offers up-to-the-minute information on more than fifty dinosaur species. With each of six spreads featuring one spectacular, large pop-up as well as booklets of smaller pop-ups and text, Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs is a magnificent display of paper engineering and creativity-an astonishing book that will be read, admired, and treasured forever. Annotation. From two renowned pop-up masters comes an awe-inspiring tribute to the world's most beloved, extinct animals and their 180-million-year reign on Earth--brought to life in 35 thrilling 3-D pop-ups. Full color.
