Praise For…


Praise for Everything Awesome About Space and Other Galactic Facts:

"A charged-up roundup of astro-facts... a blast from first to last." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Everything Awesome About Sharks and Other Underwater Creatures:

"In the wake of Everything Awesome About Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Beasts! (2019), Lowery spins out likewise frothy arrays of facts and observations about sharks, whales, giant squid, and smaller but no less extreme (or at least extremely interesting) sea life... An immersive dunk into a vast subject-and on course for shorter attention spans." -- Kirkus 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
