Publisher Comments:

An exploration of ideas, inventions, and discoveries from the Stone Age to the modern age in 10 inventive pop-up spreads
 
Starting with early humans who have no things, through to farming, civilizations, inventions, steam, electricity, computers, and the world we live in now, this ingenious novelty book tracing the development of human artifacts and ideas is sure to spark childrens' imaginations. It is packed with energetic illustrations, quirky humor, and information. From ancient civilizations to Michelangelo, Isaac Newton to steam power, to modern technology—the ideas are made accessible for the very young with pop-ups, flaps, and tabs on every spread. 

Review:

"Layton crafts a witty chronological chronicle of human ingenuity in this companion to The Story of Everything. Top-notch paper engineering blends seamlessly with Layton's scraggly ink-drawn characters and photo collage elements. The lives of early humans are transformed by fire and stone spears; pop-up panels show the rise and fall of four civilizations; and thought bubbles pop up over the heads of influential figures like Copernicus and da Vinci. Throughout, candid phrases convey historical milestones: 'Then everyone got into electricity and petrol engines. And everything got bigger and faster.' A masterful balance of humor, information, and interactive fun. Ages 5 — 7. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
