Summary

Summary

This account starts around 2700 B.C. showing a site on the banks of the Nile River. The vivid illustrations cover a period of some 30 years, as a pyramid undergoes successive stages of construction, finally serving as a pharaoh's tomb. Final illustrations bring the story forward to the present day. The pyramid is now a site visited by tourists and archaeologists.

Original pictorial treatments of places and events in history make these books as entertaining as they are informative for young readers. Each title covers a single theme with a series of time-sequence illustrations that show how one location has changed over the course of history. Each illustration covers a large two-page spread. Tabs on page edges provide identifying historical dates for each picture, and have labels to explain details in the illustration. A Glossary at the back of each book defines relevant terms.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Part of the Fast Forward series, which uses tabs on the right-hand border to allow readers to skip ahead or back in time, Dinosaur by Nicholas Harris, illus. by Peter David Scott, chronicles the life, death and enduring legacy of a Mamenchisaurus, from its beginnings in China, 160 million years ago to today, with its skeleton on display in a museum. Pyramid, illus. by Peter Dennis, tracks the architectural feat accomplished in Egypt from 2700 B.C. to 2480 B.C. and images of the pyramid still standing today. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
