1995 iN!-Ovation Award
The Cartoon History of the Universe
The Cartoon History of the Universe (Putnam New Media)was a hot property. We couldn’t get it back from the first reviewer; every time we turned around, it was gone. The two-disc set covers just about everything from the beginning of the world right up to the present time. Excellent animation, videos, and cartoons combined with quizzes and games move you through all this content at a snappy pace. The narration is informative, never pedagogic, and it’s laced with plenty of humor. Clues help younger kids keep up. This is a great one for the whole family.
– November 1994
