ANCIENT DWELLINGS OF THE SOUTHWEST
by Derek Gallagher. Historically accurate color illustrations by Sally Blakemore. Paper engineering: Eileen Banashek, Sally Blakemore, & Anthony Esparsen.
Condition: UNREAD, but not perfect, 2004 Western National Parks Assn. hardcover (pictorial boards), no edition nor printing given. Lightly perused on shelf. Problem: Pale name top inside cover with 2 Parks Assn. proof-of-purchase stamp.
Content: Archeologists say that 1,000 years ago more people lived in the Four Corners region of the Southwest than live there now. Today visitors to the region see the empty dwellings and pueblos from that time, but not the lively cultures that once built them. Ancient Dwellings of the Southwest puts the people back in these places in three dimensions. Hohokam ball players leap and dive in the ballcourt at Casa Grande Ruins in Arizona; the reader moves women at Mesa Verde in Colorado to watch them grind corn or pulls back the bow of a hunter at Bandelier in New Mexico. The buildings at all of these sites vibrate with life thanks to the artist’s conceptualizing of how they looked at the height of their use. The five-story Pueblo Bonito at Chaco Canyon unfolds out of the page while the dwellings at Bandelier and Mesa Verde nestle in the shadow of the cliffs. See how these places looked when people lived, worked, and played in them. Ages 6+. The neat thing about these pop-ups is that each has
another pop-up on the reverse side. Questions welcome. [1 copy available]

Condition: UNREAD, but perused on the shelf, c. 2006 Candlewick very large hardcover (pictorial boards - no DJ issued), firt US ediiton, 4th printing. No problems, just perused.
Content: This book is a hoot. For true believers only, a lavishly illustrated reproduction of a legendary volume by the world’s most distinguished dragonologist. Don’t let it fall into the wrong hands! Do you believe in dragons? Now, for the first time, the long-lost research of renowned nineteenth century dragonologist Dr. Ernest Drake is presented in all its eccentric glory, happily bridging the gap between dragon legend and fact. The meticulous Dr. Drake assigns Latin names to various dragon species, ruminates on why dragons are able to speak, speculates on how they could fly, and explains the true purpose of their notorious hoarding habits. Here are just a few of DRAGONOLOGY'S fascinating features: Novelty item on every spread, including tactile samples of dragon wings, dragon scales, and dragon skin; Booklet of dragon riddles (indispensable to the burgeoning dragonologist);
Sealed envelope containing a powerful dragon-calling spell; Embossed faux leather cover with silver foil, encrusted with three "emerald" dragon gems. In his afterword, Dr. Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible - a goal this tongue-in-cheek volume most affectionately achieves. An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere! Grades 2 to 7 - but adults will love the illustrations and humor. [1 copy available]

THE GREAT ADVENTURE OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS: A Pop-up Book
by Jean Fritz. Illustrated by Tomie dePaola. Paper engineering by James Diaz. Full color pop-ups.
Condition: Gently pre-read, but not perfect, 1992 Putnam hardcover (pictorial boards - no DJ issued), first printing. Problem: Shelf wear in the vorm of bumbs to the bottom corners with frayed top spine with a short tear under that. The interior, however, is ezcellent. All Pop-ups work.
Content: This collaborative work deserves consideration in spite of being a pop-up. The readable text, printed on fold-over extensions to each page, provides a good brief summary of the reasons Columbus attempted his voyage, a short description of his cargo, the journey, landfall, and his return to Spain. Fritz does not delve into any of the darker aspects of the explorations or their aftermath, but presents the trip as the ``great adventure.'' DePaola's illustrations include a view of the Orient, the royal Spanish court, the ocean voyage and landing, the shipwreck of the Santa Maria, and Columbus's triumphant procession through Barcelona. The paintings are done in deep pastel shades that evoke both the splendor of the court and the natural richness of the New World. The people have the flat, serious-looking faces characteristic of much of the artist's work. Diaz's paper engineering, which is less complicated than that of some of the genre, will provide enough movement to satisfy most readers
as they make the ships bob through the waves and Columbus bow to Ferdinand and Isabella. Wonderful! Ages 7+. [1 copy available]

edition. Small shelfwear to edges. Interior clean & tight. All pop-ups and pulls work.

the Countess Wilby-and site of this book's mise en scene, a snowbound weekend party. In the best Agatha Christie
tradition, Smyth introduces the requisite motley crew: an assortment of staff and guests each possessed of motive and
opportunity to commit the foul deed. The paper engineering, not the cast, takes center stage here: "Top Secret" dossiers
on each character can be slid out of the pages, while various flaps and pull-tabs reveal hidden architectural passages,
concealed weaponry, and contraband lurking in various valises-each of the six spreads yields enough clues, in fact, to
delight Holmes himself. And that master of 221B Baker St. would appreciate the conclusion as well, which features
three possible solutions accessed on a revolving wheel. [2 copies available]
