Encyclopedia Prehistorica Dinosaurs: The Definitive Pop-Up by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart (Hardback)
From renowned pop-up masters Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart comes an awe-inspiring tribute to the world's most beloved extinct animals and their 180-million-year reign on our planet.
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 includes fascinating, up-to-the-minute information about popular dinosaurs as well as many lesser-known varieties. 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.

"This pop-up book is absolutely stunning! I bought it for my 6 year old nephew and he absolutely flipped over it. Not only are there huge intricately designed pop-ups on each page, there are also 3 to 4 separate pop-ups under informative flaps on each page as well. This book is the best I have ever seen. I almost kept it for myself!"
"While the text in this is very informative and perhaps a bit too much like a real encyclopedia... well heck, this is a great reference book on dinosaurs in a fabulous package. Sabuda (if you know his work) is a master, and has really captured the fun, the fear, and the feeling of all the really great dinosaurs! Great colors, amazing paper-fold engineering, and its similar in design to the alice in wonderland/wizard of oz. For those of you who dont know these books (and you should get them as well), the pages are designed to have a large center display, with several booklet fold outs on each page. Inside these booklets are miniture foldouts. Really, this allows for more popups per page, and some great space saving."
