Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 2–4—The alliterative but audience-limiting series title aside, these melodramatic surveys are well designed to cater to new or reluctant readers. Each one features several rousing illustrations or (less often) photographs, which are paired with brief explanatory comments. Dinosaurs is the weakest link, as it fails to mention dino eggs or that dinosaur bones and other remnants are fossils. In other volumes, the information is accurate for all its brevity, and women do put in at least cameos in Pirates and Warriors. Some volumes end with a conundrum (Monsters with a discussion of "Are They Real?" for instance), game, or jokes, and they all have a set of true-or-false questions. [Page 68]. (c) Copyright 2012.
