Publisher Comments:

Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water! The second astonishing Encyclopedia Prehistorica book from Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart is about to pop up everywhere.

While dinosaurs patrolled the lands, massive prehistoric sharks, giant scorpions, and colossal squid cruised the ancient oceans - most with just one thing in mind: eat or be eaten. In this companion volume to the best-selling Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs, pop-up masters Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart explore the prehistoric underwater world, where monsters like megalodon ruled the waves.

Full of captivating facts and more than 35 breathtaking pop-ups, this incredible volume is sure to astonish and amaze everyone from budding marine biologists to confirmed landlubbers. After all, if prehistoric coelacanths and crocodiles are still around, what else might be lurking in today's largely unexplored oceans?

Review:

"Favorite formats and characters continue in a plethora of spring picture books. Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Sharks and Other Sea Monsters by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart follows their impressive Dinosaurs, and it's every bit as stunning. The 'monstrous pterygotus,' a lobster-like creature that's 'bigger than most adult humans' pops up in the very first spread. Mini-booklets once again zero in on specific topics, such as invertebrates and amphibians, while sturdy transparent sheets create a 3-D underwater effect. Fans of Dinosaurs will appreciate the sarcusuchus (aka 'dino-killer'), a precursor to the crocodile, and those who shuddered at the teeth of the T. rex in book one will similarly shrink from the jaws of an open-mouthed shark in this volume." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
