Recommends it for: the Dinosaur geek in all of us!
The pictures are fabulous! The text is pretty good too. I have exchanged several emails with the consultant for this book and find him to be not only smart but approachable, easy to talk to. If you missed this in the theaters then you should definitely check it out on DVD.
even it was a kid book. But I enjoyed learning about sea monster so much. it was very easy for the readers to imagine and follow up with all the information written in the book. the pictures were so beautiful. I enjoyed each line in this book.
