About this item


About the Book

A brand-new book in the 2-million-copy Photicular series features images of dinosaurs--from T. Rex to Triceratops--that really move right on the page.

Book Synopsis

Journey a hundred million years back in time, and see 8 amazing dinosaurs in motion.
A New York Times bestseller!

Using unique Photicular(R) technology that's like a 3-D movie on the page, DINOSAUR brings these legendary, long-extinct creatures to life. Each image delivers a rich, immersive visual experience--and the result is breathtaking. There's a herd of giant sauroposeidons, with their impossibly long necks, lumbering across the sun-drenched plains, a threatened velociraptor waving its wildly feathered arms, and more.

Flipping through these pages is transports readers to Earth's distant past. With informative text by science writer Kathy Wollard, it's like a natural history museum but better--experience it for yourself!

From the Back Cover

Take a magical journey back in time, to when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

We see their bones in museums. But now, see dinosaurs as if you were traveling on an expedition a hundred million years ago.

Using Unique Photicular(R) technology, DINOSAUR takes an extraordinary leap to bring these legendary and long-extinct creatures back to life.

A herd of giant sauroposeidons, with their impossibly long necks, lumber across the sun-drenched plains. A threatened velociraptor waves its wildly feathered arms. An eoraptor nibbles on a branch. A pair of duck-billed parasaurolophuses feel spring in the air and nuzzle.

Experience it for yourself.

About The Author

Dan Kainen is an artist, designer, and inventor living in New York City. He is the creator of the bestselling Photicular books Safari, Ocean, Polar, Jungle, and Wild. While working with some of the pioneers of holography, Dan created a special spotlight that was used by Soho's Museum of Holography to light holograms. The related field of holography led to Dan's interest in lenticular art and, in turn, after nearly a decade of research and experimentation, to the creation of his "Motion Viewer," his third patent in that field and the inspiration for Safari and the other Photicular books.

Kathy Wollard is a science journalist and the author of the bestselling How Come? Every Kid's Science Questions Explained. Her work has appeared in Newsday, Scholastic, Popular Science, and Family Fun magazines. She lives in rural Ohio.

But my kid was not into all the words. Could have made a great picture book, with far less information.

We love this book. My son is 9 and my daughter is 7 and they both loves this book. It is so cool how the dinosaurs move as the page is moves. It is made well to stand up to children as well.
