I loved the idea of Dinotopia from the first moment I picked up the first book years ago. The artwork has always fastinated me, and the storyline is never dull. The latest book leaves little wanting. The characters are as interesting as always, and the idea of living side-by-side with Dinosaurs has always intrigued me. "Journey to Chandara" is just another wonderful story that mixes a wonderful array of characters, and shows the diversity of people and how it's possible for one tiny island to even have their political problems. I've never been disappointed by Dinotopia, and I hope I never will be. Thank you for such a wonderful world! I escape there as often as I can!

As a kid to me the idea of dinosaurs and humans living in harmony was a much more fascinating direction than the dinosaurs eating humans! But what really gets me is the breathe taking illustrations of the book! I love good art and the artist did not trip up in any of his illustrations! As more books come they still amaze me! The creativity is absolutely stunning and makes me want to go to a world much like Dinotopia!
