If you liked Gallop! A Scanimation Book, you'll love the magical journey that is Safari. Readers, as if on safari, encounter 8 wild animals that come alive! Using an innovative lenticular-based technology, precision sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid, immersive visual experience. The cheetah bounds. The gazelle leaps. The African elephant snaps its ears. The gorilla munches the leaves off a branch. Mesmerizing!

Accompanying the images is Safari, the guide: It begins with an evocative journal of a safari along the Mara River in Kenya and interweaves the history of safaris. Then for each animal there is a lively, informative essay and an at-a-glance list of important facts. It's the romance of being on safari - and the almost visceral thrill of seeing the animals in motion - in a book unlike any other.

Celebrate the NHL's most amazing stats, records and achievements! With a contemporary design and loads of incredible photographs, NHL themes and logos, and fantastic hockey writing, Records Forever: Hockey's Unbeatable Achievements is a must-have for any hockey fan!

Hockey fans love records. They love to see what player holds the record for most points, most goals, the greatest number of assists and most amount of penalty minutes. Each season, there is a new points leader and records created one year are surpassed another. But for some players and teams, their achievements are so great that their record is considered next to unbeatable!

Just a few unbeatable achievements:

  • To better Wayne Gretzky's 2,857 career points would require that a player have 29 consecutive 100 point seasons.
  • Buffalo Sabres scoring 9 goals in a single period - when will that happen again?
  • George Hainsworth's 22 shut-outs in a single season - with today's sharpshooters, protecting a win, let alone a shutout, let alone 22 shutouts in a season, is an incredible challenge!
