When I spotted this book promoted on the author/artist’s twitter I just had to pre-order it immediately! Plus I am getting more hyped about the book with every tweet about the book.
I adore dinosaurs, and I always want more books about them. (Though I am still not sure about the new way the dinosaurs are shown these days, urgh, feathers.) So add that all that together: one of my favourite artists + dinosaurs + giant book = instant love!
Now it is just waiting another 1 and half months until it comes out, arghhhh!
Ronnie is just a normal fifth-grader trying to pass her science class’s impossible quiz on the history of dinosaurs . . . until she happens upon her neighbor—Ms. Lernin—a retired paleontologist. With the assistance of Science Magic, Ronnie and Ms. Lernin travel back through time and space to experience the Mesozoic Era firsthand. They visit three important time periods in the development of the Mesozoic Era: the Triassic, the Jurassic, and the Cretaceous. Along the way, Ronnie finds herself face-to-face with real-life dinosaurs and reptiles, like stegosauruses, velociraptors, and thalattosaurs. With the help of her neighbor’s trusty knowledge of prehistoric times, she learns the differences between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, as well as between dinosaurs, insects, and reptiles. This insightful and informative graphic novel uses engaging art to bring facts to life, giving kids the tools to understand the evolution of these prehistoric creatures and the important effects this era had on our world today.
