Wonderful art and great writing earn Dinosaurs: Fossils and Feathers, a new Science Comics volume, an A+! I love how the story focuses on the scientific discovery of dinosaurs and how people are continuing to discover and learn new things about them. Reed's humor and Flood's art make this nonfiction comic truly special. I'm going to buy copies for all the kids I know. Recommended By Jennifer H., Powells.com
