About this title

Synopsis:

Could dinosaurs still roam the earth? In the newest discovery in the ’Ology series, readers come face-to-face with living, breathing dinosaurs.

What if dinosaurs had not died out? What if whole colonies of the prehistoric beasts had survived on a remote island off the coast of South America? The latest adventure in the best-selling ’Ology series offers young dinosaur lovers a tantalizing taste of what that would be like. The year is 1907, and young adventurer Raleigh Rimes is on an expedition to South America with real-life explorer Percy Fawcett. There he discovers the unimaginable: living dinosaurs roaming the rain forest! Presented as a journal detailing their extraordinary (and hairraising) encounters with the amazing beasts — fearsomeTyrannosaurus rex, pack-hunting allosauruses, predatory velociraptors, armored triceratops, and other species — Dinosaurology is filled with flaps and booklets offering dinosaur lore, along with such novelties as a sample of dinosaur skin, a pouch of ground stegosaurus horn, and more.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Paying homage to Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World, Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park, and David Grann's The Lost City of Z (Doubleday, 2009), Dinosaurology mixes excellent information with an Edwardian-style story. As with other works in the series, interactive elements such as flaps, pull-outs, packets of glitter, and shiny relia add three-dimensional interest. The illustrations, both in full color and archival black and white, are appealing and informative. Presented as a journal documenting an expedition searching for a lost world in which scientific facts, and up-to-date particulars relating not only to the study of dinosaurs but also to the science of paleontology and the men and women who led the field in the discovery and study of those old bones. The fictional author pays tribute to Conan Doyle's work in both format and context, even slyly naming a dog after Conan Doyle's main character, and in the claim that the author appropriated the information from this journal as the basis for his Lost World. Colonel Percy H. Fawcett and his son, Jack, the primary characters in this version, were actual explorers of the Amazon, and their disappearance in the 1920s has remained an unsolved mystery. Readers interested in dinosaurs, exploration, and paleontology will enjoy the presentation of facts within the package; however, as stand-alone fiction the story is too simplistic for readers with the advanced skills necessary for comprehension. And few children would understand the many somewhat obscure references to the previous works.-Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, formerly at Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
