Some 30 odd years on print is still here, and better still, books like "The Adventures of Earth" are proving that you don't have to make silly noises or feature daft little animations to win kids over with interactive elements.
Dan and Sean have put together a flap-lifting wheel-spinning pop-up book that draws you in and serves up some utterly amazing insights into the planet we call home.
Through exploring through play, kids will swiftly learn why we sometimes refer to the earth as a jigsaw planet, how important the oceans are to the vital ecosystems and life as we know it and how the earth peels like an onion into layers, demonstrating how the planet was formed billions of years ago.
It's a truly stunning example of a non-fiction book that ticks just about every box you could wish for. It's great for a range of ages, it doesn't talk down to its audience, it's fun and makes learning fun and it's utterly and completely fascinating.
"The Adventures of Earth" is released today, 6th September 2016 by Egmont Publishing.
