Reviewed: The Pie Book
'What a great book! As soon as I received this book I was looking forward to trying out a number of the recipes inside. I have tried out quite a few of the pies so far, some of the more simple ones and some of the more complicated ones that include puff pastry and I found the instructions really easy to follow and its all helped along by some really good photography. My family have all agreed that it is a very good addition to my cookbook collection. Well done DK on yet another successful publication.'

Reviewed: Wow! Dinosaur
'The cover lives up to its title, because when you get sight of this book you simply say ''Wow!''. The cover is something to behold. The contents is equally impressive. My children are 3 and 5, outside the intended age range, but that did not stop them from wanting to get their hands on the book, and asking me what each and every dinosaur was called. The balance between illustration and written information is just about right for the target audience. My eldest is just starting to read, and so some of the lengthy words are a bit too much for her, but certainly by the time she is 7 I can see her racing through the snippets of information. Put it this way, the fabulous illustrations draw you in on each and every page, and that leaves the reader, young and old, wanting to know more, and so naturally you want to read more. Each paragraph is short enough so as not to confuse or bore, and again I would reiterate that for the target audience the level of knowledge seems about right. I see this becoming the authoritative source on Dinosaurs in our house, and will be the first port of call for any future school project.'
