Booklist

“Lessem writes in simple language and short sentences appropriate for children transitioning out of early readers. . . Bindon’s detailed illustrations imagine the creatures in dramatic settings that will bring the drama of the ancient age alive, and interested kids will find this a fine place to start before delving into more advanced books on the topic.” —Booklist
