School Library Journal, November 2019

"After a general introduction and location map, each book profiles seven dinosaurs. One or two paragraphs offer a few key facts, accompanied by a full-page or larger illustration of the creature in action. Three "Feature Facts" compare specific attributes, including dinosaur lengths and heights, along with one other area such as speed or horn length. A concluding spread gathers that data into three different graphs so readers can note the variations through a clear visual representation. Some graphs show all seven dinosaurs; others highlight three or four. Readers will need to look elsewhere for standard data such as group names or geologic eras, but the focus on specific features with supporting graphic content provides an effective format for comparing and contrasting. VERDICT Limited facts presented in a way that might grab visually oriented learners."
