Until the mid-1800s, no-one really knew what a dinosaur was - let alone what 1 looked like. For ages 6+. So when Victorian artist Waterhouse Hawkins built the first life-size models he dazzled the world with his awe-inspiring creations.

"Can you fathom a time when almost no 1 inside the world knew what a dinosaur looked like? This author-illustrator team became specialists on the subject, delving deeply into the life of Victorian artist Waterhouse Hawkins, the 1st individual to ever summon up, sketch, mold, and fabricate these ancient giants into full-size models."Barbara Kerley and Brian Selznick can--and it was a time when people utilized words like"fathom"a lot, about 150 years ago.

And the story is all true, although this veracity does make the pacing a bit clunky in spots. Overshadowing the narrative, though, are Selznick's stately, ghostly illustrations--of towering megalosaurs and Hawkins shuffling about with cane and top hat--which more than make up the difference. (Ages 9 to 12) --Paul Hughes Then again, Kerley and Selznick have researched their hero with meticulous care (check out the copious endnotes) , so possibly only Hawkins himself can be blamed for leading a life that didn't always progress in perfect dramatic form.
