Alphasaurs And Other Prehistoric Types

ReviewPraise for Alphabeasties And Other Amazing Types:* Winner of Silver Parents' Choice Honor and AIGA Best 50 Covers Show"A thrilling spin through the alphabet.... No ordinary abecedarian, this typographical trip will wow design fans."-- Publishers Weekly, Starred ReviewPraise for Bugs by the Numbers:"...the sort of handsome, hyper-designed nonfiction diversion that will fit almost as well on an adult coffee table as on the nursery bookshelf. " --Wall Street JournalThe award-winning creators of Alphabeasties and Bugs but the Numbers have gone prehistoric! Using letters in an artful assortment of type, the famed duo create a menagerie of dazzling dinosaurs and pack each page with captivating dino-facts. This sophisticated rendering of dinosaur-ologu will leap out from other dino-books to entrain, engage, and educate aspiring paleontologists.From School Library JournalK-Gr 4-Each page is dedicated to a different dinosaur, from allosaurus to zuniceratops. On each one, readers will find the reptile's name, pronunciation, a wealth of fascinating facts (presented in a fun way with plenty of alliteration), and eye-catching illustrations. The text is delivered in short captions, but is chock-full of the kinds of facts and comparisons that will leave a lasting impression on young readers. Twenty-seven prehistoric lizards are covered-both those that are familiar and many lesser known, but equally fascinating. The illustrations were boldly created by typography. The featured dinosaurs are made up solely of an arrangement of their first letters, both capital and lower case. The many foldout pages are beautifully done and add to the overall appeal and excitement of the book. The font varies in style, size, and color, creating even more visual interest. Many libraries have alphabet books in abundance, but this is one not to miss.-Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DEa(c) Copyright 2011.
