I like graphic novels and wordless picture books and dinosaurs, but this didn't do it for me. Each story is essentially the same: vigilante dinosaur takes revenge on predator animal. Just change the setting and animals. I did get a few chuckles out of 'Gon Lives With the Penguins', but I didn't care for the character of Gon; even if he crusades in the name of justice for some, he's ultimately a nasty little critter. However, the illustrations are stunning: detailed, evocative and expansive.

amazing artwork, no dialogue. trouble is I find some of the scenes quite distressing… he's such an angry little dinosaur and he all but tortures some of the animals around him. i think that just underlines how good the drawing is, so much emotion is expressed by tears, sweat and drool. there are some funny moments but for the most part it's how Gon get's his own way.

Dropped at 30 pages. I had trouble following the story, I kept feeling like I'm reading the panels wrong, but I triple-checked and new I was reading them in the correct order. And yet the story was still hard to follow. I'm giving up on this one. The first volume was enough.

This was a big hit with E. He thought it was hilarious. And he liked the novelty of reading "backwards," back to front and right to left.

This series is amazing in that it accomplishes so much with no text (at least in the few I've 'read'). I think they've just started republishing them in the states, so be on the look out.
