Reviewed by Avery, age 9
I thought this was one of the best books I have reviewed to date. The book weighs a lot and every page is a colorful portrait of the ins and out of the making of The Croods. Throughout the book, two pages both fold out to reveal one very large piece of artwork showing concept art which gives you some inside knowledge of what goes into making full length movies. One of my favorite pages is 114. It shows the 3D models of the environment, and then the different artworks the artists used to come up with the final environment. This is cool because my mom does 3D modeling so it was a process I really understood.
