Praise For Dinosaurium: Welcome to the Museum

This addition to the Welcome to the Museum series offers a vivid tour of a paleontological exhibition...Wormell’s dramatic digital engravings are reminiscent of vintage scientific plates; each is paired with a corresponding key identifying the image, while in sections of lively, clear prose, Murray offers greater detail about the subjects in the tableaus.
—Publishers Weekly

The full-page illustrations by Wormell are impressive and capture the imagination...it treats the subject matter with a seriousness dino aficionados will appreciate. A solid purchase for collections with the need for more dinosaur content.
