Review:
Master puppeteers on the stage of pop-up books, Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart dive to the depths of the ocean in a second, but no less spectacular, volume of Encyclopedia Prehistorica.

Sharks and Other Sea Monsters packs its pages with thirty-five remarkable pop-ups folded with facts and details of the prehistoric deep. Bringing a contemporary voice to the text, and delivering models of the monsters to the harbors of readers’ laps, this nonfiction gem of the ocean will lure landlubbers and salty submariners into the legends of the Seven Seas.
