I'm a big fan of the Dinotopia franchise, but as it is based in america it can be hard keeping up with it. I recently discovered the novel series and this book. I read it eagerly, but it didn't take very long, and there isn't many separate locations.
The story is based before the rest of the series, and follows a young man who is brought up in Poseidos, a 'modern' civilisation of mechanical dinosaurs on an island to the East. The larger pictures of there are fascinating, but most are too restricted in their subjects to be overly interesting. The man learns of an invasion plot and breaks away to the mainland. Again some larger pictures have details worth examining but most are merely illustrating individual scenes.
After the story, about half the book is taken up with bonus material, including an additional story, then some pictures of element design for Poseidos which was interesting and included storyboards and preliminary pictures which show how much work goes into the books, then a good series of notes, detailing major civilisations on the islands, major locations and major characters. It is nice to see it summarised, but there was little extra above what you would know already if you are familiar with the series.
As the previous reviewer said, good for a completist

Dinotopia was one of the most beautifully illustrated and wonderfully creative books I have ever enjoyed. This perhaps,less so. For a completionist, then I guess you have to buy it, but the story is weaker ,the volume slimmer and the overall artwork is not as strong as the others. Worth buying now though, so you don't have to pay ridiculous e bay prices!!!

Dinosaurs plus humans and modern machines 5 July 2014
By Becky Dempsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was given an advance copy of "Dinotopia: First Flight 20th Anniversary edition" by James Gurney through Netgalley.com for me to be able to review it. My copy was an ebook version, which caused some problems in the viewing of the pictures, but there won't be that problem in the actual print book.

I have heard of the Dinotopia books before, but haven't read any of them since they came out after I was out of college. "First Flight" starts with Will Denison reading the "Scroll" that tells the story of Gideon Altaire and then proceeds to tell the story of how the first flight came about and ending with Will finishing reading the scroll. I thought the story was good and my 8 year old daughter really enjoyed the book as well. It was an interesting idea having humans and dinosaurs alongside modern mechanical machines. The pictures were big and colorful and helped to bring the world of Dinotopia to life.

The Bonus features include a complete story that tells of Blake Terrapin and his fight for Waterfall City alongside Nina Griggs and Toby Ostrander. There were more in depth descriptions of the major empires of Dinotopia, locations, animals, important human characters, and vehicles and tech. There are also many pages of concept art and story boards.

Beauty and Inspiring 16 May 2014
By Fernando - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
James Gurney is not only a great artist but one of those that distinguishes himself from the crowd. He captures the beauty of animals from its simplicity as residents in the harmony of nature to its magestic and unique features lost in the past of evolution. Not to mention that Gurney's work delivers the sentation of goodness, gratitude and admiration to God's creations!

Gorgeous Book - 9 Jun. 2014

I love everything James Gurney does - so I'm biased.... but it is a beautiful book and am enjoying the extra goodies in the back of it. We are collecting all of the Dinotopia books! I love it as much or more than my boys.
Another well done Dinotopia book 24 Jun. 2014

This guy never disappoints. All these books still relate to one another and I love seeing same characters throughout the stories. Also beautifully illustrated of course.
