Quotes & Awards

  • “[Kerley] suffuses her text with a contagious sense of wonder and amazement.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The man is Waterhouse Hawkins, who, in Victorian England, devoted his life to making ordinary people aware of dinosaurs at a time when most had never heard of them and could not imagine what they looked like…Stunning.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Although many of Hawkins’ dinosaur models are now known to be inaccurate, the passion of his life and his single-minded pursuit of it rings loud and clear. Appealing on many levels, this will be a favorite dinosaur book for years to come.””


  • “This book presents the fervor and spirit of a dedicated, little-known individual whose conceptions…astounded the minds and stirred the imaginations of scientists then involved in the actual birth of paleontology. A distinguished book in every way.””
