"An immersive dunk into a vast subject -- and on course for shorter attention spans." -- Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Everything Awesome About Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Beasts:

A manic but solid series kickoff." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Lowery's cartoony spot art, in black, green, and orange, provides additional historical and cultural information and frequently supports the narrative." -- The Horn Book
"Barnett and Lowery team up again in this second outing of international espionage mystery with royal overtones... this is a nifty mystery for young readers and a worthy sequel to the first." -- Kirkus Reviews
* "Barnett and Lowery bring the funny to the serious art of espionage in a perfect interplay of text and illustration... Told with a sense of nostalgia for 1980s history and pop culture, the silliness and originality of this book will hook young readers." -- School Library Journal, starred review
