More About Safari by Dan Kainen; Carol Kaufmann
 
 
 
Overview
ANew York Times bestseller, Safari is a magical journey for the whole family. Readers, as if on African safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive using never-before-seen Photicular technology. Each full-color image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The result is breathtaking. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. It s mesmerizing, as visually immediate as a National Geographic or Animal Planet special.

Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It s the romance of being on safari and the thrill of seeing the animals in motion in a book unlike any other."

Lenticular technology takes a big leap forward with this virtual safari that highlights eight African animals. Triggered by page turns, Kainen's animated images are akin to those in Rufus Butler Seder's Scanimation titles, but even more remarkable in their realism; watching a western lowland gorilla chew or a Thomson's gazelle leap isn't all that different from watching a clip of a nature film (or at least an animated gif). Kaufmann opens the book with a recounting of a safari to Kenya's Masai Mara reserve; it reads as adult ("As the sun settles into the savanna, we... watch the long silhouettes of giraffes while sipping a hearty Cabernet Sauvignon"), but both the information contained there and in the profiles of the eight animals will fascinate young readers. As will Kainen's animations, of course. All ages. (Oct.)
