Beyond the Sixth Extinction: A Post-Apocalyptic Pop-Up by Shawn Sheehy. NEW!

The asteroid which crashed on Earth and led to the extinction of the dinosaurs is known as the Fifth Extinction event. Whether or not we know it, the sixth global extinction is already under way, propelled not by a meteor but by human activity on Earth. Take a long step forward into the year 4847 with the help of stunning pop-ups portraying eight fantastical creatures, along with spreads and flaps presenting details about each one. Paper engineer Shawn Sheehy envisions the aftermath of extinction as a flourishing ecosystem centered around fictional creatures that could evolve from existing organisms. This evolutionary extravaganza offers a time line of the six extinction events in Earth’s history, a “field guide” to each creature, a diagram of species relationships, a habitat map of the (imagined) ruins of Chicago, and an illuminating author’s note.

Your young scientists will be engrossed by this fascinating, inventive, and scientifically plausible look at what the distant future may hold. Ages 12 and up. 40pp.
