Graphic Novel Review: DINOSAURS #1: IN THE BEGINNING

From the fine folks at Papercutz, DINOSAURS #1: IN THE BEGINNING is a series of comic strips (ranging from one page to several pages) that works both as introduction for youngsters to the fascinating creatures we call dinosaurs as well as a book to increase the knowledge of someone who has already become enthralled with the creatures. The book is sort of narrated by Indino Jones, but he has help along the way from a bunch of compsognathi who often end up in some serious trouble. The book explains where the name dinosaur came from, what distinguishes dinosaurs from other creatures who lived the same time they did, where they lived, what they ate, how they behaved, etc. In total, the book examines about 17 different dinosaur species. There’s an index of terms at the very end as well as a list of some of the different dinosaur species (as well as important information about each one) that were examined in the book. I really enjoyed DINOSAURS #1: IN THE BEGINNING. I learned a couple things I didn’t know before, such as there’s a dinosaur that has the nickname of Elvisaurus. This would make a great book for any child interested in dinosaurs.
