5 Stars Out Of 5
A Beautiful Book, Fun to Read & Discuss
December 25, 2012
I received this gift as an early Christmas present, and I have to say it's a five-star gift! First, the book is a beautiful hardcover, smyth sewn, incorporating high-quality paper with high- resolution, full-color images and eye-popping detail on every page. The attractive cover and layout screams for readers to dive in and explore! Second, it's simply fun to read! In addition to the years of travel and research that went into the making of this book, the author shares his personal journey and passion for writing, and presents the facts in a way that is clear and compelling (my 13 year-old can read and understand most of it). The book would be a splendid addition to any coffee table, family room, doctor's office or library. I showed it to a colleague whose son loves anything dinosaur and he's now on the hunt for a copy. Third, I feel this book answers a lot of questions about dragon legends and dinosaurs but also raises a lot of questions. Having it in your hands and being able to show it to others also seems to lend more credibility to the discussion as a whole. In short, a worthwhile investment and a beautiful addition to any home, school or library.
