Technically, the book is superbly organized, and written in a zippy, engaging style that balances fact with fun? any young reader fascinated with prehistoric life will love Jurassic Poop.
The young and the curious will enjoy the presentation of a seemingly infinite amount of information ? as much as the subject matter itself.
Berkowitz’ style is goofy and lighthearted, but there’s plenty of real information ? this is an effectively wacky look at a revealing if odd branch of science.
