ASTEROID IMPACT A SMASH! 14. September 2000
Von Brian Franczak - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Douglas Henderson's newest children's book ASTEROID IMPACT is without doubt the best nonfiction dinosaur book for kids to hit the shelves since, well, Henderson's last book. Lavishly illustrated with 28 breathtaking full-color scenes (including the cover) and 6 color diagrammatic illustrations, the book sets up and depicts the scenario of an asteroid impact and its aftermath at the end of the Cretaceous Period, 65 million years ago.
No one is better than Henderson when it comes to rendering dinosaurs and other Mesozoic denizens in their natural habitats, and this book contains what I consider to be some of his best paleolife work ever. Unsurprisingly, he also shows the same affinity and aptitude for astronomical art, presenting a series of awe-inspiring space scenes that simply boggle the mind with their artistry. He starts the 40-page book with several eye-poppingly beautiful scenes of life in Late Cretaceous North America and its environs just prior to the impact, then begins interspersing them with some of the best space art this side of Chesley Bonestell as he begins showing the asteroid's approach. When the mountain-sized rock finally comes hurtling through Earth's atmosphere and smashes into the ocean near what is now the Yucatán Peninsula, so precisely designed and brilliantly executed are the images that one has the overwhelming impression of viewing an actual documentary film of the event.
The book's text is no less an accomplishment, concise and intelligently written, unlike the (sadly) greater majority of cliché-ridden dinosaur books for children that inhabit bookstore shelves, volumes that impart little of real substance and uncaringly continue to perpetuate outmoded ideas. This is Henderson's second outing as writer/artist (DINOSAUR TREE, published by Bradbury Press in 1994, was his first solo effort) and the time and care taken to ensure that this book is accurate and accessible is evident on every page. At no time does he insult his young audience by "dumbing down" his text, yet another common complaint concerning the current crop of dinosaur books aimed at kids. Henderson presents his data in clear, simple language without sacrificing any of the underlying scientific content. A rare feat, and one to be lauded in an age where science, our one true connection to the real world, is all-too-often relegated to the background or, worse, ignored entirely in favor of mindless "entertainment".
Buy this book. Better yet, buy two. Give one to a child who'll appreciate it and keep the other for yourself.

Scary, creepy, and worth every penny 18. April 2002
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, so "creepy" and "scary" aren't usually words associated with childrens' books...but let's face it, the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous period wasn't exactly nice and tame either...
When I first read this book, it gave me fact, every time I read through it, it gives me goosebumps...the artwork is simply astounding. Henderson is the best of the best: you ARE there when you are looking at his paintings...and these paintings are nothing less than terrifying in their realism. I highly recomend this book to anyone and everyone. Buy one. Buy tons, because this is the closest you will ever get to experiencing the K/T Impact Event.

Gorgeous (and Terrifying) Illustrations 20. Juli 2013
Von starbuck - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Douglas Henderson is without a doubt one of the most impressive paleoartists currently working. This 40-page book for older children was both written and illustrated by Henderson and the result is fantastic. The text describes, step by step, the events leading up to, and the resulting devastation caused by, the asteroid impact that ended the Mesozoic Era and brought about the extinction of non-avian dinosaurs. Even more breathtaking are Henderson's wonderful illustrations. Wow. About 12 include images of dinosaurs (or prehistoric creature of some sort) and another 15 depict the impact itself and its effects on the Earth's landscape. We get views both from space and from the ground. Some of the images -- a painting of tsunamis towering over burning forests, for example -- are positively terrifying.

This book appears to be out of print. I was easily able to find a clean used copy for a very reasonable price. I'd recommend that any enthusiast of dinosaur paleontology grab one of these while you still can. For my own part, I'll be looking for more books about dinosaurs illustrated by Henderson. A quick search on Google will help anyone unconverted understand why so many prominent paleoartists cite Henderson as one of their most admired influences.

Beautiful Paleo-Art! 24. August 2014
Von Yakov Varganov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Dug Henderson is possibly my favorite living paleo-artist. His ability to create prehistoric scenery and unique mood in each painting makes all of his works memorable and pretty much imprints them in one's mind forever. This book is no exception! The artist's take on the devastating asteroid impact and it's consequences for Earth's ecology is stunning and memorable, as well as solidly grounded in science, at least at the time of publishing.
Asteroid Impact 19. Oktober 2004
Von Joe Zika - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Asteroid Impact" written by Douglas Henderson is a wonderful little book that explains, in not too technical terms, how and what happens when an asteroid impacts with the Earth. This book is written for readers that are from 6 to 9 years old, making the reading content along with the brilliant illustrations, a wonder for those of any age. "Asteroid Impact" draws on many well-respected theories from paleontology, physics, geology and astronomy making for very engaging reading.

The book takes the reader back in time to about sixty-five million years ago, when the Earth was alive with the dinosaurs, reptiles and mammals, as we see an asteroid plunge through the Earth's atmosphere and slam directly into the Earth. Making a real mess for the life living at the time. The book has some really good painting art combining plants with dinosaurs in it, also of what happens when an astroid hits the Earth.

The text is easy to read and makes for some very good reading... it's engaging and makes the reader think as to what can happen if an impact should occur of the same magnitude as the one that hit the Yucatan Peninsula. Just as the Earth's life has died out after the great extinction in the Mesozoic Era... the time the dinosaurs lived... began. Now, the Mesozoic was to end with another great extinction... an astroid impact would bring a catastrophe to the late Cretaceous world. I would highly recommed this book for the early reader from 7 years of age and on. This book tells the tale without too much of the technical jargon but conveys and makes the point abundantly clear as to what has happened. The typeface is easy to read and is larger for the younger readers as they read into the book they get to see what is happening by the picture art.

"Asteroid Impact" has a question and answer section in the back of the book and an index and bibliography for the reader to do further research albeit rather limited. But, it gets the reader a start in the right direction, to satisfy some of the built up curiosity. "Asteroid Impact" is a solid 5 star book as it is engaging, interesting, informative, and educational.
