From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-8-Starting with the earliest recorded symbols, Brookfield looks at the evolution of writing and the forms in which it has been recorded. A paragraph for each segment summarizes the method covered while illustrations, such as hieroglyphics, scrolls, and a step-by-step demonstration of typesetting, fill the pages. As with most titles in the series, the pages are so packed with art that they appear cluttered. This assault on the eyes makes it difficult to focus on any single picture or the explanatory paragraph. The writing is clear enough, and the captions are often written with humor; unfortunately, much of the effect gets lost in the visual glut. This title is more suitable for browsing than for research.
