Thanks to the Kid Lit Exchange network and Orchard Books for the review copy of this book by Mike Lowery. All opinions are my own.

My favorite thing about this nonfiction text is that it looks and reads like a graphic novel. The facts are paired with jokes and cartoon-like drawings that will keep kids interested. There is even a section at the end that explains how to draw various dinosaurs. I also love that this book gives a brief history of life on Earth leading up to the dinosaurs.

This was a fun graphic novel? comic book? presentation about prehistoric animals. Bold graphics pop and compete for your attention. Lots of little jokes and asides. Pronunciation guides are provided but there's a bit of inconsistency in reminding the reader of which period the author is talking about. A browser's delight. Books consulted listed, but otherwise not sourced in the arc.

A stupendous amount of information about, yes-dinosaurs. Every page in this book is jam-packed, making it a great choice for savvy readers, and perhaps a bit difficult for developing readers. Uncorrected proof reviewed.
