Layers upon layers of scientific information are presented in this series through eye-popping pop ups (each double page spread has one big pop up, plus lots of smaller ones hidden in mini-attached pages). It is perfect for kids who love animals and science (and have learned to be gentle with delicate books).

I tried reading the original version of Alice in Wonderland to my oldest about a year ago as our before-bed-chapter-book. It did not click; we abandoned it. This version, on the other hand, has been entirely successful. It contains the essence of the story, the visuals are wonderful, and it never feels too long. Both boys are thrilled when I pull it out.
