"The illustrations use an elegant color palette but don't sacrifice adventure, humor or information for design...The careful curation of this parade of creatures takes readers on a comprehensive journey through the fossil record. I enjoyed the paleontologists, depicted in droll graphic-novel-style comics interspersed throughout, almost as much as I enjoyed the paleontology."-- The New York Times
"This oversized, stylish book invites readers to pour over its intricate pen-and-ink/watercolor illustrations and its narrative passages interlaced with tongue-in-cheek talk bubbles...Book design steals the show here. The thick, cream-colored pages make a great backdrop for the terrific artwork...truly unique and beautiful."
Starred review-- Youth Services Book Review
"The subdued palette and inky lines of Helene Rajcak's pictures give the book a stylish feel, while its lively, graphic-novel-style layout conveys a sense of humor about dinosaurs, fossils and the work of those who study them."-- The Wall Street Journal
"The text is really easily understood and yet it's still quite comprehensive scientifically. Lots of facts, simply expressed."-- Radio New Zealand - Nine to Noon
"This multi-layered book is a must for anyone interested in palaeontology. And if that's not you, it will definitely change your mind. This is a treasure trove of information the whole family can savour and enjoy for many years, and highly recommended for ages 8+."-- Readings
"Fossils from Lost Worlds is a large-size hardback book of fascinations. Pick up this glorious book and head back into the distant past and go digging."-- Paula Green, Poetry Box
