Grade 5-8-- The almost overwhelming layout of this book saturates readers with pictures, captions, charts, and a brief text, giving the illusion of intense information, but without adequate depth. Platt presents double-page treatments of 28 subjects, including shadow puppets, moving images, cameras, film, motion pictures, stars, studios, make up, props, special effects, animation, sound, etc. The multiple visuals are eye-catching, impressive, and accurate. Film is a browser's paradise; however, students who want to explore the subject beyond this instant gratification should turn to Anderson's Make Your Own Animated Movies and Videotapes (Little, 1991), Schwartz's Making Movies (Lerner, 1989), Meyer's Magic in the Dark (Facts on File, 1985), or Clise's Special Effects (Viking, 1987; o.p.). --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Dept . , RI
