This book is amazing: it uses the principles behind the old kinetoscopes along with a striped acetate overlay to produce lifelike movement as you open each page. Buy two--someone in your house is going to want to tear it apart to see how it works!

The visual effects are spectacular; the accompanying text is abysmal. Surely the publisher could have found a writer who could complement the pictures. It is embarrassing to read this book aloud to a child.

The text of this book is uninspired (and oddly odd in an oddish sort of way), but the "scanimation" is so cool that I simply don't care. I can sit and watch one of the pages turn over and over.Unfortunately, my toddler is not as impressed. Moving pictures? So what. Why not just watch tv?Okay. But it's a book!He doesn't care. As far as he's concerned, either the pictures move or they don't. And these aren't even in color.Alas. I still think it's cool.

A really nifty book.

This picture book is great for younger audiences as well as grade school children. The words are simple to read and the moving pictures are very intriguing. Each page introduces a new animal and their actions. For example, a horse gallops and a chicken struts.
