The Dorling Kindersley Children's Picture Encyclopedia. By Claire Llewellyn. Dorling Kindersley Pounds 14.99.

You recognise the shiny white pages and those sharp bright photographs and you know that it must be Dorling Kindersley. Each busy page clamours for attention, although when you give that attention the effort is not always adequately rewarded. How much information is it possible to give in one short sentence? "Bollywood, Bombay - this is the centre of India's film industry"; "Skin protection - It's important to protect your skin from the Sun's harmful rays." This is a clearly organised, well-indexed book with beautiful pictures.
