Excellently crafted, presented and informative book for any dino mad kids.

Just bought for my 10 year-old nephew as a Christmas present. The pop-ups are brilliant and the info gives a good account of the different types of dinosaur, their names, what we currently know about them and some interesting facts.

Fantastic value when you think how much effort must go into them.

Not so much a review, but a close-up, slow flick through on Youtube:

They look great. Style and substance - a quality gift.

Just spent an hour looking through all this man's work having stumbled upon him. Will probably find myself purchasing 1 or 2 more, some of the classic stories like Alice in wonderland, Peter Pan and Wizard of Oz would really fire my younger nephews imagination.

My only question is: surely he can't be making much on them with that level of craftmanship when measured by an hourly rate? Maybe he doesn't need to and it's a labour of love, sure looks like it.

Yes, they are amazing books, beautifully put together. Kids so love them: I think Alice In Wonderland is the best one, details here -

They have a mesmeric quality set to that music, even for adults. Very few kids toys/games/books can revivify that wonder you felt often as a child. Magic.

Just ordered Alice and Peter Pan too

Going to order this , my son is dinosaur mad !

Just watched the YouTube video looks brilliant thank you ordered

This is a work of art.

Just checked and Wordery seem to have put the price up by £1.30 now. Probably got wind of it being on here or just noticed a sudden spike in sales.

similar price on the bay though

£12.56 via Wordery direct: wordery.com/enc…BwE

Fewer than 10 left though. I used NOV10 to get 10% off second book too. I ordered Mr Men Adventure with Dinosaurs too.

Sorry about that stupid link. Posted from phone.

These are really nice. I have the boxset.

£13.23 dispatched from Book Depository via Amazon. Ordered, thanks.

What beautiful books, I’ve bought Alice and Oz

I have the dinasaour boxset & the shark one even has a sound effect - really incredible. Grown-ups love them as much as the kids (if not more).
