Journey by Matteo Bacchin
Book DescriptionThe first volume in a series of six comic-book adventures that bring the dinosaurs back to life. The Journey, the first title in Abbeville's Dinosaurs series, features over 60 pages in full-color. It takes place in the late Triassic period, 210 million years ago, in the northern part of the supercontinent Pangaea. It follows the dangerous trek of a Plateosaurus--a giant herbivore--and her hatchlings in search of food. In Abbeville's Dinosaurs series, a talented artist and a noted paleontologist have teamed up to re-create the vanished world of the dinosaurs for young readers. Each volume in the series tells the story, in comic-book form, of a different dinosaur living in its particular geological time and place. The narrative is entertaining, while all the details of the dinosaur's behavior and its encounters with other species are rendered with scientific accuracy. At the back of each volume, meanwhile, are several short essays, abundantly illustrated with original drawings and photographs of fossils, that explain more about the creatures and geographical settings encountered in the comic.
