Barbara Kerley - The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins

The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins

Author: Barbara Kerley; Illustrator: Brian Selznick

  • AGES 9 - 11 
  • Genre Biography and Autobiography
This extraordinary true story introduces readers to the unforgettable Waterhouse Hawkins: Victorian artist and visionary who built the world's first life-size models of dinosaurs!
With impeccable attention to detail, Barbara Kerley unearths a story of consuming passion, triumph, loss, and courage — and ultimately, of an extraordinary legacy that lives on today. Caldecott Medalist Brian Selznick celebrates this complex and fascinating individual through luminous, soul-stirring paintings that form a visual masterpiece. Not until the mid 1800s were dinosaurs heard of in Victorian England. But when artist Waterhouse Hawkins built the first life-size models of dinosaurs in his native England, and later in America, he dazzled the world with his awe-inspiring creations. The author and illustrator present a story of consuming passion, triumph, loss, and a remarkable legacy that lives on today. Full-color illustrations.
The awe-inspiring Caldecott Honor winner now in an elegant paperback edition!
