Review for Dictionary of Dinosaurs

Review for Dictionary of Dinosaurs

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

So, I normally don’t really request or get dinosaur books any more due to how they look these days. Sorry, I have grown up with a few bird-like dinosaurs (because they were always that), but now more and more of my favourite dinosaurs are changing to overgrown turkeys/chickens. Not a favourite. Maybe if I was a kid I would think it is cool, but yeah, I am an adult, and I prefer my dinosaurs to be scary lizards.

But I couldn’t resist this one, the illustrations looked too gorgeous, and before I knew what happened my hand clicked on the request button.

I can understand them not giving all the dinosaurs an image, but come on, at least give them all a description and a height in comparison with humans part. Now I noticed that I just kind of zoomed in on the ones that did have descriptions and illustrations and just forgot to read the rest (no worries, I read everything in the end). 😐

I loved that some dinosaurs got a whole page (with background) for themselves! I really was looking forward to those.

I have to say this isn’t a book to read in one go. I just read it whenever I had a bit of time/was up for some dinosaur a-b-c’s.

The illustrations were absolutely gorgeous! Beautifully detailed, with beautiful and vivid colours! Of course I was sad to see some of my favourites in feathers, oh well, it is what it is. Thankfully, one of my favourites, velociraptor still looked itself!

But yeah, not all the dinosaurs getting information or illustrations, not a book you can read in one go, I am deducing some points for that. But the rest was fabulous. Short but good information to those that got a description (even if I knew almost everything already), the height thing was good, I LOVED the illustrations.
