" An excellent example of how comics can be a fabulous medium for teaching. There is also a joy to the presentation and storytelling in this that leaps off the page. I imagine kids would have a fun time with this book, but as an adult who loves dinosaurs I also got a great deal out of it. " said.

" Fabulous example of graphic non-fiction, on par with Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales. Packed full of dinosaur facts, awesome illustrations and lots of humor. Highly recommend to 10-99 year olds who want to learn more about dinosaurs! " said.

" Fun and deeply researched. Even as an enthusiast of the Mesozoic, I learned plenty here and gained clarity on concepts I'd only loosely grasped. Everything from the concept of evolution to how we decide animals belong to different species is covered in clear and highly amusing ways. " said.

" This book is everything that young, curious me would have loved to know. I wish I'd had it when I was a questioning kiddo, so I'm very glad it exists for the current/future kid like me who wanted to learn, and got a live Ken Ham lecture instead. " said.

" Won a copy in a giveaway and gifted it to one of my nephews. While it contains interesting information, each page is so crammed with facts that I wonder if it will hold his interest for long. Perhaps with added color and a little less text on each page, it would be more enjoyable. I would still recommend this book for older children (5th grade+). " said.

" This book is GREAT! Really fun illustrations, with a great diversity of plants and animals represented. I think it would be great to just look through with a younger child, and it has engaging topics for older learners.The format is well developed for getting a couple of key concepts (e.g. convergent evolution) by bringing them up in different contexts. " said.

" This is the best dinosaur book I've read! I wish I had this when I was growing up. It goes through the evolution of the dinosaurs (AKA birds) and surrounding creatures like crocodilids, pleisiosaurs, snakes, lizards, turtles, and mammals.Plus, this includes a fun story about a kid who needs to learn about dinosaurs to do well on her next quiz, and mixed with Abby Howard's amazing humor, this is a must-read for anyone who enjoys learning about dinosaurs (AKA birds...) " said.

"Comparisons to Bill Nye and Magic School Bus are appropriate here. Packed with information and up-to-date enough for exacting dinosaur fans in upper elementary grades, it's a volume to be savored and revisited with the full-color illustrations showing careful attention to the build of these prehistoric creatures. Don't let the wacky intro deter you - this is as packed with information as any more traditional nonfiction dinosaur title. It is layered with a healthy dose of humor, often provided by the punnily named Miss Lernin." said.
