Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-8-In this lift-the-flap book, Knight literally peels off the layers of Western clothing styles from the Roman Empire through the 1960s. Twelve colorful two-page spreads are each introduced with a double-sided gatefold that gives historical background on the era and descriptions of its clothing. Each illustration features a man, a woman, a boy, and a girl standing against a period background. When lifted, the flaps depicting the garments reveal the next layer of clothing, often down to the underwear. A description of the clothing is printed on the back of each flap. The margin around the large picture is filled with smaller drawings detailing hairstyles, shoes, and accessories. The only drawback to this unique and fascinating book is its fragile design.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS
