    Once before, we introduced a brand-new idea with a challenge: You won’t believe your eyes. The book wasGallop!, 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 isSafari, 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.

    • Book not at all what was expected.

      I had assumed that this was a book that would be interesting for a child, a somewhat young child. The reason for thinking that is that the pictures move as you move the page. However, the problem with this book is in the printed page. The details and information included is much too old for the age of child that would be interested in moving photos of animals. So altho it was purchased as a gift for a 5 almost 6 yr. old, it was not given to him because of the reason stated. It will be donated to the local library for their next book sale. Hopefully someone will find it good for their purposes and the library funds will be enhanced slightly. Considering the cost of this book it was, sadly, a great disappointment both from a cost stand point and a gift stand point.
