This book just excels at everything it tries to do. The story it tells is fascinating one enough that I'd recommend this to full-on adults with no children. The art is lovely and amazingly expressive. It's inspiring, and not just for young girls, but for anybody from an impoverished background or who fancies themselves an autodidact. To top it all off, it's educational as heck, acting as a very good introduction to the history of paleontology. Overall, A gorgeous, informative, and heartening picture book for all ages! ~ Reviewed by David Gray-Smith
