Review quote

Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs is an entertaining story which is a great introduction for children who are starting to get interested in dinosaurs and that period of time.-The Bookworm Baby Bedtime stories are the perfect way for us to learn together, and the repeat reads definitely encourage facts to stick - for me, that is. Books like Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs are an ideal fit for us, and Neffy is particularly great.

It s an appealing introduction to eight bygone species and one (ours) that s "Still Going!"Publishers Weekly Young viewers will marvel at the succession of massive ruminants and predators, which Lillington renders in watercolors with reasonable accuracy, if anthropomorphic facial expressions.Kirkus Reviews No page, not even the endpapers, is wasted in this appealing and informative visit to prehistory.Wall Street Journal To see such honest, informed and unique work that shows dedication and a two-fingers-up to common, trendy illustration is just such a joyIt's Nice That" A unique and special dinosaur book unlike any others I have seen before!-The Wandering Booksellershow more
