Oombawka Design reviews Animal! 

"Visually beautiful ... (We) have already flipped through this book from cover to cover; multiple times! My children are quickly learning about new mammals, birds, reptiles and fish... their exploration has now gone beyond their initial excitement about the stunning images and they are eager to learn more about these amazing creatures."

Frugal Mom Eh reviews The Stars 

"the ultimate visual guide to the cosmos...With incredible new imagery from the Hubble Space Telescope...I have yet to see a book as beautiful, comprehensive and interesting to take in as The Stars out-of-this-world gift for anyone curious about our Universe."

Mind Reels reviews Marvel Absolutely Everything You Need To Know

"...a fun, vibrant collection of information, and images, amassing trivia and facts from as far back as 1939 all the way through to the present. Filled with colorful eye-popping images and facts, this book seems uniquely tailored for the comic universe....perfect for younger fans, but looks gorgeous next to any respectable comic collection as well."

Canadian Ladybug reviews Medicine

"Stunning...a compelling blend of riveting stories, accessible information, and striking illustrations...shows and tells how medicine has evolved into the lifesaving discipline it is today.Each page will unlock a part of the history of medicine you might have not realized happened...a  great reference to own and to explore."

 Sukasa reviews Big History

"A fantastic book...(An) approachable yet insightful inter-disciplinary approach that frames history through a scientific lens is made all the more palatable with some fantastic pictures. I would recommend it to anyone with a thirst for knowledge."
