About the book

Cretaceous is the research-based, action-packed and heart-wrenching account of a young T-Rex who is separated from its parents and must navigate the dangerous world around it.

When a Tyrannosaurus Rex is separated from its family unit, it embarks on a harrowing journey to reunite with them before the raw, real dangers of the Cretaceous Era separate them for good. This heart-wrenching story takes to the skies and dives into the sea—and explores everywhere in between—in this research-based, fictional account written and illustrated by Tadd Galusha (TMNT/Ghostbusters 2).

Honestly when I first requested this book, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I have never read a graphic novel that tells a story through pictures. I have read a picture book before, but never a book with 160 pages worth of pictures. The cover this kind of a basic designed cover, which could have been better for a graphic novel. ( I am not judging anybody or anyone’s financial standards.)

I really enjoyed this story that was told. I don’t say it often because sometimes you get lost along the way when it comes to picture stories. It actually told a story though, one of a very sad nature. The design of the pictures will leave you speechless. Without ruining anything the ending is one to die for. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good story but it is not recommended for anybody 4 & under.
