Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
The well-known "Eyewitness" series provides nonfiction volumes centered on one subject. Each is spectacular in both photography and authentic, accurate information. Film, one of the titles, is recommended for ages ten and up, but a younger reader will certainly enjoy the photographs and can glean some information. Other titles in the series include Costume, Boat, and Horse.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- The almost overwhelming layout of this book saturates readers with pictures, captions, charts, and a brief text, giving the illusion of intense information, but without adequate depth. Platt presents double-page treatments of 28 subjects, including shadow puppets, moving images, cameras, film, motion pictures, stars, studios, make up, props, special effects, animation, sound, etc. The multiple visuals are eye-catching, impressive, and accurate. Film is a browser's paradise; however, students who want to explore the subject beyond this instant gratification should turn to Anderson's Make Your Own Animated Movies and Videotapes (Little, 1991), Schwartz's Making Movies (Lerner, 1989), Meyer's Magic in the Dark (Facts on File, 1985), or Clise's Special Effects (Viking, 1987; o.p.). --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Dept . , RI
