A Kid's Review
This review is from: Dinotopia (Dinotopia (HarperCollins)) (Hardcover)
This book has a lot about dinosaur names and how the dinosaurs lived, even the plants they eat. There are a lot of pictures that can help you to learn to recognize them. It is all very well drawn.
But it has a different perspective because they think of time differently, not as 1 o'clock but as when to do certain things, such as times to harvest.
It is very good realistic fiction because it makes you feel like you are a part of the story. It is written as a journal, kind of like talking to you, which makes the story seem more real.
The plot is very complicated. So it always keeps your attention and keeps you turning the pages. There is not a lot of action, but when there is it is very realistic because you feel the danger and excitment.
