Presented in unflipped format (read right-to-left, just as the author originally drew it), Dinosaur Hour Volume 1 is a black-and-white manga (Japanese graphic novel) that combines amazing facts about dinosaurs with a hefty dose of humor! Young and old readers alike will enjoy these zany short stories about species ranging from velociraptor to dimetrodon to triceratops, baryonyx, and many more as they toil to survive, escape quicksand, escort dinosaur babies, or even run in fear from ghosts! Though the stories are fictional with anthropomorphic personalities given to the dinos, the true facts scattered amid captions adds a surprisingly educational touch to this enjoyable romp. Dinosaur Hour is enthusiastically recommended light reading for dino fans of all ages!
