In the Presence of Dinosaurs Reviews
I actually had this book years ago, when I was little, but gave it up. I recently bought it again, and I love it even more now! The paintings are absolutely phenomenal- cudos to Larry Felder! The text is amazing, painting a beautiful and highly-detailed picture of a world long gone. It's as if Mr. Colagrande somehow managed to leap back in time, and wrote down his experiences for us to read ourselves! Truly a must-own for any dinosaur fanatic or aspiring future paleontologist! Needless to say, my new copy goes almost everywhere with me now, and has a place of high honor in my personal library!
I received this book and was very happy with the pictures and the information, it takes you through different times, when the earth was developing, and the photographs are simply stunning, a book that really educates, in regards to the dinosaurs,What a book!!!!
This book is a true treasure. I have not heard of Larry Felder before,but he has quickly become my favourite dinosaur painter. The way the book is made is as unique as the paintings. It is not an encyclopedia,but instead a book of wildlife on Earth. The pictures are amazingly detailed and I can see that the animals` shapes and colours are based on carefull studies of real wildlife. For example,the Pteranodons looks and acts like pelicans,as well as the Parasaurolophus are similar to zebras. Most of the meat-eating dinosaurs are feathered and are sometimes similar to birds of prey or lions and tigers. The habitat pictures are among my favourites... Among my favourites comes the triassic chapter,the late jurassic,and the cretaceous chapters of the seas and the dinosaur migrations. I love drawing dinosaurs and when I look at the pictures,I learn to draw such dinosaurs too,although not as detailed as Felder`s. I will also base my story "A Dinosaur Story" on the behaviour and look of the animals in this book. Over all,this is a book that could not be much better. The only thing minus is that I think it is almost too short. A book of 300 pages would have been better and with more artists.
Any book this man writes will be amazing.
I don't know quite what to make of this book. Parts of it are excellent. Parts of it are, well, not so good.
