Dinosaurology mixes excellent information with an Edwardian-style story. As with other works in the series, interactive elements such as flaps, pull-outs, packets of glitter, and shiny relia add three-dimensional interest. The illustrations, both in full color and archival black and white, are appealing and informative.

Yellowed pages studded with notes, maps, drawings and lift-the-flap extras detail the boy’s adventures and bring to life many prehistoric creatures, remains and encounters. This fictional account is an entertaining way to learn a lot of facts, including a brief history of paleontology, dinosaur characteristics and behavior, plus a great deal about popular prehistoric creatures not classified as true dinosaurs, such as the Megalodon, Ichthyosaurus and Pterodactyl.

Engaging… Highly enlightening… Dinosaurology stretches across time to highlight anachronistic-for-1907 facts that illuminate as they entertain.
