- Adding another dimension to the third, to be exact to many of the garish, glutinous creatures portrayed in British comedian Ricky ervais's three previous galleries doesn't improve their looks any, but definitely adds to their gonzo appeal. From the glaring purple Mernimbler to the bizarrely portmanteau Squeeg ("thought to be the missing link between prehistoric Strankulators and the first Dunklings"), more than two dozen bulbous-eyed monsters rear up, slide past, or, in the case of the "jub-wobbling" Splunge (scientific name: Jello Snurbloid), explode in a mix of large central pop-ups and smaller figures in folded corner booklets. One particularly notable spread titled "Flanimal Evolution" sideswipes a certain famous Michelangelo painting. The paper engineering is more varied and inventive than Gervais's free-association commentary, but the stream of nonsense words have a giggle-inducing cumulative effect.
- Recommended ages: 4-8 years.
