Overview


Kids love dinosaurs. Kids love mazes. And everyone loves a package so unique it says gift even without the wrapping. Introducing Dinomaze, the one-of-a-kind book that comes inside a bone.

Dinomaze is a collection of over 50 anatomically correct, colossal fossil mazes with paths through the skeletons of Allosaurus, T. Rex, Velociraptor, Triceratops, giant sloth, saber-toothed tiger, and other ancient animals. Drawn by Elizabeth Carpenter from actual fossil mounts in the American Museum of Natural History, the illustrations are dazzling. Even more fun, they are also challenging mazes-start at a tail, for example, find your way through the rib cage, and exit at the mouth. The mazes are printed on a poster-size pad--tear off a sheet to work on the floor or the wall-and each comes with information about the animal, including the meaning of its name, when the creature lived, its habits and its habitat. Interspersed are skull--only speed mazes--how fast can you get through the Styracosaurus head? Ingeniously, the poster-size book is rolled and packaged inside a tube that's shaped like a big bone fresh from a paleontological dig. The shaft of the bone is a sturdy cardboard tube; the ends, white molded plastic joint shapes.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sealed in a two-foot-long plastic bone, Elizabeth Carpenter's Dinomaze: Colossal Fossil Maze Book offers some 40 "anatomically correct" poster-size dinosaur drawings/mazes for youngsters to puzzle their way through. With a large trim size 18" 13 1/2" there's lots on the tear-out page, including information about where the dino lived, what its name means and more. ( Nov.)

Who could resist a large dinosaur bone filled with mazes? The large format book of 40 mazes is rolled inside of the 22-inch yellow bone with joints on both ends. It definitely grabs your attention. The forty posters are 13 by 19 inches and each has a large black-and-white line drawing of a dinosaur skeleton that is a maze. Each poster has a brief general description of the dinosaur pictured and where it lived, as well as specific data about the animal. A small line drawing of the complete animal, not just skeleton, appears in a corner. Several posters have mini-mazes, such as a wrist of a maniraptor. There is so much material on these pages that there is something for even those with no interest in mazes. A few speed mazes are thrown in to challenge the adept. Drawings of the maze solutions can be found at the end of the book. 2001, Workman Publishing, $14.95. Ages 6 to 12. Reviewer: Kristin Harris AGES: 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
