Right where you are now by Lisa Montierth, illustrated by Ashley Burke

The Text: The author looks at prehistory, showing how “right where you are now” the landscape was very different, with volcanoes, prehistoric animals, jungles, and oceans.

The Illustrations: The pictures and wild and colorful, but difficult to identify even with the visual dictionary at the end of the story. Some of them are odd and creepy and don’t seem to fit into the story, like the ending spread showing children and a dog imagining what might be there in the future; something that looks like a Pacman with massive teeth, a bone with a ribbon, and a flying rabbit?

The Extras: A visual dictionary identifies most of the animals and a few geographical events introduced in the book.

Verdict: Some of the pictures were attractive and it’s a good basic concept, but the art was uneven and there weren’t enough sources and information about the massive amounts of information condensed into the book. I didn’t like the vagueness of “right where you are now” which makes it sound like there were volcanoes, jungles, floods, and prehistoric animals all in the same place. Also, when I saw the author list her favorite dinosaur as a brontosaurus, that made the rest of the information suspect to me and I wanted to see a bibliography and sources and maps. Not recommended.
