Genre: graphic novel, dinosaurs
This series of graphic novels is told entirely without words or dialogue of any kind, and therefore each volume can serve as a perfect standalone if desired. The art is beautiful and dynamic although I will say that I wish the dinosaurs had some feathers.
In the animal kingdom, animals neither love nor hate each other.
Love and hate are parts of a natural whole. A supreme balance many consider to be universal, or even divine. An elemental love.
A love that mankind could never experience.

But! If you are the sort of person that puts out pretty photo books on their coffee table, likes dinosaurs and is fine with them not having feathers, this is an easy yes for you. As for me, my sadness at featherless dinos is outweighed by the striking art in these pages. As it is wordless, it’s a quick and easy read for all ages, though you will want to linger on the images within. It’s a definite thumbs-up from me.
I received a copy of this graphic novel from NetGalley (as a Read Now title, not requested). This has in no way influenced my review.
