  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 April #2
    Reed and Flood's entry in the Science Comics series traces the history of paleontology as much as it covers dinosaurs. Beginning with some speculation about ancient cultures' interpretation of dinosaur fossils, Flood and Reed go on to explain how industrialization, with all its new construction, led to the sudden wealth of fossil discoveries. A flurry of fossil finds by some dynamic characters follows, and as scientific theories become more complex, so, too, do the dinos. Flood's dinosaurs are very up-to-date—every velociraptor has feathers, for instance—and though a few layout decisions make the information a bit muddy, the wealth of diagrams, maps, and detailed illustrations are engrossing. The ultimate lesson is that scientific discoveries are never static, and reevaluating long-held beliefs about the world is essential to scientific progress. Amid a glossary, notes, and further reading suggestions, one of Reed and Flood's appendixes bears that out. Just before the book was printed, one of their facts was debunked by a new discovery, so they include an update. Aspiring scientists of all stripes will be charmed. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

    This topic gets the graphic-novel treatment. Flood's detailed panel illustrations cover a lot of ground, including nineteenth-century dinosaur hunters; nomenclature practice; and various geological, evolutionary, and paleontological discoveries. There's some humor along with a solid presentation of facts, and the clean design helps makes the information accessible; the somewhat advanced content makes the book most appropriate for upper-elementary-age readers. Reading list. Glos. Copyright 2016 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
