Review:

This fetching pop-up book promises readers hours of diversion and entertainment. Pull the compact disc out of the back pocket of the blue jeans that cover the front of The Rock Pack and listen to rock pioneers such as Ray Davies and Martha Reeves discuss their experiences while you interact with more than 50 years of rock-and-roll history. By the time you've finished thumbing through the booklets tucked into artfully designed pockets, peering behind posters advertising Otis Redding and Chuck Berry concerts, greeting the Shirelles (who pop up in the sixties), answering the Jimi Hendrix quiz and playing with models of his guitars, and turning a dial to check out Madonna's various incarnations, you'll have a comprehensive view of the evolution of rock-and-roll--from early blues through the erection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. All of the elements that make up this book are held together by a time line that combines information about rock icons, from B.B. King and Ruth Brown to Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam, with information that puts the music in historical context.
