Once before, we introduced a brand-new idea with a challenge: You won’t believe your eyes. The book was Gallop!, the technology was Scanimation®, and the result was a bestseller. Now we’re back with another dazzling idea, and this time for the whole family: The book is Safari, it uses never-before-seen Photicular technology, and the result is breathtaking. Safari is a magical journey. Readers, as if on safari, encounter eight wild animals that come alive. Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. 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 almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion— in a book unlike any other.

An absolutely fascinating book! The pictures move! Really, you have to see it to believe it. The only problem with this book is that the pictures are so fascinating, I forgot to read the text! This is a great gift for an animal loving child (or adult).
