Publisher Comments:

In Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara, artist and author James Gurney escorts readers — adults and children alike — to the wondrous lost island of Dinotopia, an enthralling world of art, science, exploration, and invention in which humans and dinosaurs live peacefully together. In the spirit of Marco Polo and Gulliver's Travels, Journey to Chandara recounts the adventures of explorer Arthur Denison and dinosaur Bix through the exotic eastern realm of Dinotopia.

After many years of searching, artist James Gurney has discovered a never-before-seen journal by the nineteenth-century explorer Arthur Denison in a used bookstore. Denison's previous travel accounts, published as Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time and Dinotopia: The World Beneath, introduced a lost island where dinosaurs and humans live together in peaceful interdependence.

Now Professor Denison and his saurian companion, Bix, set out on a perilous journey to the long-forgotten empire of Chandara. When their personal invitation from the emperor goes missing, they are forced to cross the border penniless and in disguise. Every step of the way, Denison documents in exquisite detail the creatures, characters, and architecture he encounters: a village composed of three galleons propped up on end, a fifty-foot-tall Brachiosaurus outfitted for firefighting, an Allosaurus tending its hatchlings, young pilots air jousting on giant pterosaurs, and a lot more.

The land of Dinotopia is conjured by a brief but vivid narrative and a beguiling variety of visuals, including maps, cutaway views, mechanical diagrams, optical illusions, and cryptographic alphabets. By turns pragmatic, whimsical, and philosophical, the journal weaves together songs, games, Fibonacci theory, tessellation, and epistemology in the life-affirming vision that will cast a new light on the overlooked wonders of our own world.

The entries in Arthur's latest journal will captivate both new fans and the scores of followers who made the original Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time a publishing sensation as a New York Times bestseller, with more than two million copies sold in eighteen languages in more than thirty countries.

Remarkable discoveries, memorable new characters, amazing new cities, marvelous experiences, and exotic feathered dinosaurs based on the latest scientific discoveries await readers following Arthur Denison and his companions through their Journey to Chandara. In addition Journey to Chandara is a visual masterpiece featuring more than 100 works of breathtaking new art.

Review:
