Encyclopedia Prehistorica: The Complete Collection £12.99 @ Red House

Prehistorica Encyclopedia

I'm thrilled to see this pop up again. I had wanted to buy this before Christmas. Having heard nothing but great things about the set, I'm now putting it aside for my son's birthday. The Encyclopedia Prehistorica: The Complete Collection has an RRP of £50, but is on sale at Red House for £12.99. The cheapest I've seen it is at £11 on Amazon and that was just for a single book.

You can get free standard delivery too if you enter the code FREEFEB on the Basket page. Now, don't copy and paste the code. I did that and it didn't work. The site told me the code was invalid. Then I typed it in manually, and it worked just fine.

You won't see the code applied though until you get to the delivery page.

The age range for the books is 7 plus. These are well constructed and detailed pop-up books. According to the website "not only will you find stunning paper models of a range of prehistoric beasts, sea monsters and dinosaurs, but you'll also learn a wealth of fascinating facts about these extraordinary creatures. From the T.rex and the sabre-toothed tiger to enormous sharks, these are not animals you'd want to run into, but you'll love reading about them!"

However what really sold me on these books are the descriptions in the customer reviews. One person writes "These books are so intricately put together, they are works of art." And then there's this from another review "The books themselves are larger than I expected and come in a lovely miniature bookcase with a small drawer for pop-up animals."
