Dinotopia is an amazing place, you journey through it with Will and his dad. Gurney's art truly makes it feel alive, like it is a place that you can visit by simply entering the books pages. The lore, locations, and technologies all feel realistic. Though, still with a sense of whimsy mixed in for good measure. You are not buying a book made of paper and ink, you are buying a ticket to another time and place. Explore it with your family, or enjoy the ride by yourself.
It is a ride that is well worth the price.
This really makes a wonderful and unique gift- I keep giving it and it is a success with both the children and their parents. And the 20th Anniversary Edition is really special!
Utterly gorgeous and ingenious illustrations and world building, combined with a simple story that doesn't talk down to younger readers.
Recently bought this again as an adult for inspiration in writing stories for D&D
I’ve been rereading some of my favorite children’s stories that I read during my preteen and teen years. As a middle-aged guy I enjoyed revisiting Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales, Charlotte’s Web, Winnie the Pooh The Complete Tales, Treasure Island, Watership Down and The Wind in the Willows as much, maybe even more, than I did as a kid. All classics.
I’d shelve Dinotopia and the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, with this group of classic children’s stories too.
Normally I’m a sampler. I haven’t seen any of the movies from the following series, but I did read the first books, Twilight, Outlander, Fifty Shades of Grey, Divergent, etc. I sample a lot of first books, but I don’t read many complete series. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, and The Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series by George Martin are a couple of exceptions.
Other sci-fi and fantasy authors I like include Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Paolo Bacigalupi, Jack Campbell, Arthur C. Clarke, Earnest Cline, Abe Evergreen, Robert A. Heinlein, Hugh Howey, Larry Niven, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, and Andy Weir.
