Dino Might!

James Gurney, creator of the popular ?Dinotopia? series of books, is blogging about what it is like to give an author talk at the Library of Congress:

  1. Wow! What a find – “Dinotopia books are based on the journals of explorer Arthur Denison, who was shipwrecked on the island in 1862.” I’m going to recommend you to BoingBoing. And yes you must have been in heaven sifting through all those journals. Thanks James.

  2. Dinotopia has been a nice read for me. Good to see that this blog post addresses it.
