Ronnie is just a normal fifth-grader trying to pass her science class’s impossible quiz on the history of dinosaurs... until she happens upon her neighbor -- Ms. Lernin -- a retired paleontologist. With the assistance of Science Magic, Ronnie and Ms. Lernin travel back through time and space to experience the Mesozoic Era firsthand. They visit three important time periods in the development of the Mesozoic Era: the Triassic, the Jurassic, and the Cretaceous. Along the way, Ronnie finds herself face-to-face with real-life dinosaurs and reptiles, like stegosauruses, velociraptors, and thalattosaurs. With the help of her neighbor’s trusty knowledge of prehistoric times, she learns the differences between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores, as well as between dinosaurs, insects, and reptiles.

There is so much information crammed onto these pages! That's good if you wanna get the most out of a book on the Mesozoic Era, not so much if you want a light read on a graphic novel. This book has some DENSE pages, so you won't fly through this. You gotta take pause and absorb it all.

I do like the detail of including proto-feathers on dinosaurs. Controversy aside, I like that the author took recent discoveries in paleontology into consideration when making this book.
And there's a certain appeal in seeing large, fluffy "terrible lizards". It shows a closer link to their bird descendants and--dare I say cute? They're definitely charming but still dangerous.
