Praise For…

"Multilayered overlapping cutouts provide an unusually detailed 3-D look at T. Rex's innards—or at least what can be deduced about them from the fossil record. Visible through a big acetate window on the front cover, the cutouts peel back with each turn of a sturdy page—highlighting, for instance, realistically depicted arm and leg bones, major muscle groups, or reconstructions of pulmonary and other systems...Budding biologists and others with an interest in what's inside will be entranced." - Kirkus Reviews

"Utilizing a dynamic design and incorporating intriguing bite-size facts, the Inside Out series, introduces younger readers to different objects, mostly involving bodies, by peeling away the layers...Ultimately, an informative introduction that's built around an irresistible conceit." - Maggie Reagan, for Booklist
