Dinosaur Empire is a book about a fifth grader named Ronnie who bombs her science test about dinosaurs. On her way home from school, her retired paleontologist neighbor, Mrs. Lernin, pops her head out of a recycling bin and asks her what’s wrong. Ronnie tells her about the less than stellar score. Together, they travel back to the Age of Dinosaurs to learn first-hand about prehistoric creatures who defined the Mesozoic Era. Will Ronnie ace the next test? I loved this book because at first, when Ronnie fails her quiz, she throws the paper into a recycling bin because she doesn’t want to show her parents a zero out of ten. Then Mrs. Lernin steps in, showing her a whole new ancient world. Once Ronnie visits the dinosaur times, she starts to believe in herself. She grows so much mentally on this adventure, that by the end of the book, she loves dinosaurs and wants to retake the quiz. I love this book for showing readers how to persevere. I give this book a 5 out of five stars. I learned a lot about the three periods that make up the Mesozoic Era: the Triassic, the Jurassic, and the Cretaceous by reading this graphic novel. I devoured this book in one sitting, and you most likely will too. This was an excellent book, and I am hoping for a sequel. Reviewed by Levi M., Age 11, Denver Mensa
