5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Marvellous!!, 30 July 2001
By A Customer
This stunningly illustrated sequel to the internationally successful Dinotopia, captivating both young and old alike, is another hit by Gurney.
'The World Beneath' continues the adventures of the Professor Arthur Denison and his son Will (apprentice Skybax rider), as they both persue their Dinotopian dreams. Will persues his goal to become a Master Pilot of the Skybax, and his father continues his now infamous expedition to discover the secret past of Dinotopia. These two contrasting
stories of adventure work well together, although the tale is no longer from the point of view of Arthur Denison, it is still a well crafted tale of discovery.
The body of the book is added to by the blatantly obvious attraction between Denison and Oriana, a new and intriguing character, and the deceptive and villainous Lee Crabb of the original Dinotopia. To say any more would spoil this magnificent masterpiece by James Gurney, another triumph by this talented author and artist. Well worth a read, pure fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars DINOTASTIC!, 7 May 2011
Sequel fantasy storybook to Dinotopia in landscape HB/dj format. Former scene painter Gurney has transferred his artistic talents to the book illustration medium with aplomb and produced a remarkable result. The book is in the style of a biologist's journal, with watercolour sketches of creature details and oil paintings of whole scenes from the story, all underpinned with excellent draughtsmanship. Check out the footprint alphabet - toe much, geddit? Oh, never mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious artwork, 31 Oct 2010
This review is from: Dinotopia: The World Beneath (Hardcover)
Art is a big hobby of mine and I'm always looking for inspiration. I found in in bucketfuls in this book. It is a jewel to linger and drool over. The artwork is brimming with imagination and colour. It is an absolute feast for the eyes. James Gurney's artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Five stars just isn't enough for this wonderful book. Don't ask to borrow my copy because you're not getting it. Go and buy your own. Go and buy it NOW!
