This is another good art book from Dreamworks and Insight Editions. Character designs are about one third of the book. The rest are concept art for locations, storyboards and props like trains, planes, automobiles, banana shooting machine guns, etc.

DreamWorks has recruited Barbara Robertson, a contributing editor for Computer Graphics World who has received numerous awards including the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award and the Society of Technical Communications’ Award of Excellence. Chris Rock, the voice of Marty the zebra, wrote the brief foreword.
The Madagascar 3 was being produced (in 3D), The Art of Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted is extremely comprehensive in its graphics presentation.Close-ups of all the main characters the now-familiar Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippopotamus, and Melman the giraffe, as well as the new characters created for this installment; the circus animals Vitaly the Siberian tiger, Gia the jaguar, and Stefano the sea lion, plus their human nemesis etc...
About The Madagascar 3 : Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman have escaped from New York’s Central Park Zoo to find their African roots, and end up in Madagascar by mistake, in Madagascar (2005). Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008) brought them (with the penguins and chimps, plus the Madagascan lemurs) to the African mainland, where they were all disappointed by their “roots” and wanted to return to the New York Zoo. In Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, the Zoosters travel from Africa to Monte Carlo where the penguins and chimps have gone, to use their patched-together airplane to fly back to New York. But the plane is hopelessly wrecked, and the “wild animals” in swank Monte Carlo come to the attention of its animal-control officer, a frustrated Big Game Hunter-wannabe who seizes upon their capture or killing as her golden opportunity. To escape, the African quartet poses as circus animals to join a ramshackle traveling circus passing through Monaco on its way to, ultimately, New York.
