The divine Encyclopedia Mythologica series grows mightier still, as gods and heroes meet the kings of pop-up.Continuing the thrilling new mythological pop-up trilogy, the masterminds behind the phenomenal Encyclopedia Prehistorica turn their attention to the dazzling and the divine, bringing to life the Gods and Heroes of myth and legend. This stunning book takes the intrepid reader on a grand pop-up tour of centuries-old myths and legends from across the globe. Explore the lush banks of the Nile of Ancient Egypt, and visit Zeus's kingdom on Mount Olympus, high above the clouds of Ancient Greece. Touch down in the frozen lands of the Norse gods; venture to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor rules from the heavens; and on into the wilds of Oceania, where jealous Pele's volcanic rage simmers just below the earth's crust.

About the Author:

Matthew Reinhart is an illustrator and pop-up picture book maker, creating the successful Encyclopedia Prehistorica series with Robert Sabuda. Robert Sabuda is also a renowned pop-up picture book creator. Beginning his career by illustrating colouring books (for such characters as Rambo!), he has since gone on to make amazingly inventive pop-ups, including the marvellous Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Matthew and Robert live together in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–8—This handsome volume introduces beings powerful enough to "push the seasons forward, forge mighty civilizations, and shape the very earth." Six gloriously illustrated spreads, each graced by a dramatic paper-sculpture centerpiece and additional fold-out booklets, provide a glimpse at gods and heroes from around the world along with appetite-whetting tidbits of myths and legends. Represented are the deities of ancient Egypt, the Greek pantheon, mortal champions of the classical world, Norse gods and goddesses, Asian and Polynesian divinities, and the "Great Spirits of the New World." The artwork, set against pastel backdrops, combines traditional images with modern sensibilities to stunning effect. An airy pop-up of Olympus includes all 12 primary gods; a pull-tab flips miniature pages to reveal Herakles's 12 labors; a 3-D Thor swings his famed hammer down with a powerful thrust; hot-headed Pele emerges from a volcano base; Spider Woman weaves a celestial web out of silver cord; and more. The text covers a lot of ground but is well written and works hand-in-hand with the striking, innovative illustrations to encourage further exploration. Use this attention-grabbing overview to brew up reader interest and launch studies of ancient cultures and mythology.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
