By MK Reed and Joe Flood
For younger readers, this is an entertaining and informative comic book about dinosaurs with lush, detailed illustrations. For teens and adults, it’s a thoughtful history of paleontology and the development of scientific understanding.
In graphic novel format, this educational book explores various important paleontological discoveries, from William Smith (1769–1839), who made significant geological findings while building canals in England, to Mary Anning (1799–1847), who started as a seashell seller and became a renowned paleontologist, to today’s scientists who are making almost daily discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like and why they disappeared.
