Reviews

Praise for Everything Awesome About Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Beasts:

* Lowery sandwiches a populous parade of very simply drawn dinos between a history of prehistory and a roundup of diverse topics, from what paleontologists do to sets of dinosaur jokes and A Few Kinda Weird (and Unlikely!) Dino Extinction Theories... though true dinosaurs hold the spotlight, flying and marine reptiles, early mammals, and other fabulous early fauna take such frequent star turns that along with infobites galore, readers will come away with a fairly sound understanding of just how dinosaurs fit into the whole history of life on this planet... A manic but solid series kickoff. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise for Mac Undercover, illustrated by Mike Lowery:

* Barnett and Lowery bring the funny to the serious art of espionage in a perfect interplay of text and illustration... Barnett interweaves tidbits of global history fit for trivia lovers, while Lowery's comic-style images play a key role in the humor... Told with a sense of nostalgia for 1980s history and pop culture, the silliness and originality of this book will hook young readers. -- School Library Journal, starred review

An enjoyable romp that will leave readers salivating for the sequel. -- Kirkus Reviews

[Barnett's] riotous series debut as an adult recalling a 1980s childhood caper... goofy, two-color pictures by Lowery (the Doodle Adventure series) ramp up the silliness of this adventure... which should snare even the most hesitant readers. -- Publishers Weekly
