Old Children's Book. Liked it as a kid, but haven't read it in years. ( )

Beautiful story, but it isn't the story so much as the images and the idea BEHIND the story that make this great. I love this entire series. ( )

This was my favourite book as a child. I remember ordering it from the Scholastic book club at school. The story of humans and dinosaurs living together is wonderful, and the illustrations are amazing. I remember reading in the preface that the author “found” the journal on which the story is based in a library, and thinking to myself that it therefore MUST be true.

The Scholastic edition I read seems to be out of print, but there will be a 20th anniversary edition coming out in the fall.
