If you are in middle grades and love dinosaurs this book will be fun.  This is a fan fiction placing you in South America on an expedition with legendary Percy Fawcett who searched for the Lost City of Z.  Raleigh Rimes his assistant chronicles the expedition pointing out various dinosaurs (they names and characteristics of each type).  The story runs you all around this island showing you the meat eaters, the herbivores, the avian and the aquatic.  The story is set in the early 1900’s and it has the feel of Jules Verne’s classic Journey to the Center of the Earth

The illustrations were nicely in-depth and there were letters and artifacts that you could examine every few pages.  I am not usually a fan of fanfictions but this one was enjoyable.
