Eric Rohmann's Caldecott Honor-winning debut is now available as a Dragonfly paperback. It is at once a wordless time-travel adventure and a meditation on the scientific theory that dinosaurs were the evolutionary ancestors of birds. The New York Times Book Review called Time Flies -a work of informed imagination and masterly storytelling unobtrusively underpinned by good science...an entirely absorbing narrative made all the more rich by its wordlessness.- Kirkus Reviews hailed it as -a splendid debut.-
“Unusual perspectives and striking compositions and images make for a dynamic and intriguing book. This title has potential for classroom use—when studying paleontology or evolution, preparing for a field trip, or doing creative writing projects. All in all, a title that children will love.”—School Library Journal
“Awesome is the only word for this wordless picture book.”—Atlantic Monthly
“In beautifully composed spreads, the museum’s glowering sandstone hues are imaginatively played off against the early world’s innocent sky blue and vegetable green, the tiny, lithe bird against the lumbering primeval giants, flesh against bone, shadow against substance. A splendid debut.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred
