Re: Dinotopia books
Not much of a dinosaur person, being only a high school student myself,
but I love the picture book series (not too fond of the chapter book
series-- I've only read a couple of those). The original books themselves I
think are beautifully drawn and that's primarily why I read them. I like
doodling so the Dinotopia series tends to be something I look back on
frequently to get ideas from.
To the best of my knowledge, the dinosaur illustrations are fairly
accurate, even the behavior is pretty accurate (ex. Oviraptor is not the
stereotypical "egg stealer" but rather a nurturer who takes care of all the
eggs). Although, to play the devil's advocate, dinosaurs could never talk...
nor could they all get along and live in harmony in some sort of Utopian
society. Humans wouldn't last very long. The book is fun to look at, even if
the plot is a tad skewed.
