Praise For Dinosaur Empire! (Earth Before Us #1): Journey through the Mesozoic Era

**STARRED REVIEW**
"An information-dense but fast-moving exploration of how scientists have come to understand life in that period (dinosaurs, as well as mammals, insects, and sea life), clearly and amusingly explained through the duo’s dialogue."

— Publishers Weekly

"Howard details characteristics of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, covers similarities and differences among different species, and offers information on evolution, convergent evolution, and mutations...a great addition to graphic novel or dinosaur collections."

— School Library Journal

"It’s an effective way of putting the vast history of the world before humans in perspective; dinosaur nuts (and there are many) will eat it up."


— Booklist

"The graphic panels teem with (labeled) prehistoric life including, along with dozens of dinos, many early mammals and other contemporaries. Howard depicts nearly all of this fauna with snub noses and such friendly expressions..."
