5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling adventure, 29 Feb 2004
By 
Tom (Alcester, Warks United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Fantastic Dinosaur Adventure (Paperback)
An exciting childrens story that has lots of twists and turns. There are almost twenty different kinds of dinosaurs in the story, many are ones that children will not know about. My favourite chapter is chapter 4 Parting of the Ways becuase Uncle Lancelot saved a baby Diplodocus surrounded by fire, the children get chased by an Allosaurus and Emma flies on a Gnathosaurus. Gerald Durrell knows about extinct animals as well as ones alive now.

4.0 out of 5 stars well written but sometimes a bit wrong on science, 11 Dec 2011

Good characters, a good range of dinosaurs including some unusual ones. From what I know some of them are wrong in habits or biology (e.g. fur on pterosaur wings, using necks to push down trees, all herbivores are friendly (think of a rhino!)) but for a book written twenty years ago it is fairly accurate. The difference between eras is made clear, the animal behaviour feel right most of the time and the story has a real pace to it without feeling rushed. Well written and enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle imparting of knowledge!, 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book with a story line that captures children's imagination and at the same time provides useful information and points to ponder. What a shame it is currently out of print and not readily available.

5.0 out of 5 stars 20 years later and I still remember how much I loved this book, 5 Feb 2008
By 
This review is from: The Fantastic Dinosaur Adventure (Paperback)
Some bits were scary, some bits thrilling and all of it was great fun and is possibly responsible for my abiding love of dinosaurs.
