Anno's Sundial. Mitsumasa Anno.

Anno's Sundial

New York: Philomel Books, 1987.

Hardcover. 10" X 7 3/4". 28pp. Mild wear to pictorial paper over boards with light rubbing to covers and edges. Bumps to head of spine and to rear hinge with small tears at each. Pages are clean and unmarked. Interactive flaps and pop-up scenes are functional and unworn. Binding is sound.

In this, his first pop-up picture book, internationally known author-artist Mitsumasa Anno treats his readers to a three-dimensional view of time. In a text that is as entertaining as a game, and pictures that unfold or stand up as the pages are opened, Mr. Anno makes the complex relationship between the motions of the Sun and Earth graphically clear and understandable.

Here is a perfect introduction to the study of time and its measurement, a book that offers delightful evidence of Mitsumasa Anno's belief that science and mathematics can open up avenues of insight for young people into the beauty and order of our universe.(Publisher). Good +. Item #9893
