The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins is a book about a man from England named Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins who grew up with a love for art and animals. He was recruited by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to build dinosaurs for their new art and science museum, the Crystal Palace. His work was admired and respected by all of England, even the leading scientists of the time. He was passionate about his work and went on to teach, illustrate, and lecture. Word of his success got back to America and they wanted him to build dinosaurs for them too. Production and construction began on the dinosaurs and museums. A corrupt politician halted progress on the museum calling it a waste of time, later hiring people to destroy all his work. He painted his dinosaurs instead before leaving to go back home. His work was meaningful and the world’s first encounter with these antient animals and is still visited today.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I had never heard of Waterhouse Hawkins before and the story was interesting and fun to read while also giving background and history of Hawkins’s life and contributions to science regarding dinosaurs. This would be a good book to incorporate into science or history lessons when the topic of dinosaurs come up or just to have in the class library for students to read during their free time. ( )

Top 100 Favorite because:

This picture book is larger than life, and that's only appropriate given who it is about. Everything from the typography, to the text chosen, colors and style of the artwork all highlights the extraordinary and hyperbolic life of Waterhouse Hawkins. Much like illustrator Brian Selznick states in his artist's note in the back matter, I had never heard of this man before now. I think the man himself would have been proud and excited to see what has been written and drawn about him and his dinosaurs.
Back matter includes: Author's notes, Illustrator's notes, and images of dinosaurs as Hawkins knew them compared with modern interpretations.
I also find it interesting a book illustrated by Brian Selznick is in my top 100. I know he's incredibly popular and award-winning, but I haven't either at at like his work, or only in some ways (the only other work I can think of is the cuteness of Baby Monkey, Private Eye). ( )

A passionate artist, Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, was determined to show the world what dinosaurs looked like. Using discovered bones as his guide, he created life size figures. His dinosaurs were even put on display at the now destroyed Crystal Palace in England. Even with the obstacles he faced along the way, he brought dinosaurs to life for all to see. I had never heard of Waterhouse Hawkins before I read this story. The illustrations are rich, and the story is engaging. I loved the author and illustrator’s notes at the end that delved deeper into the historical and scientific information presented in the text. This book skillfully combines art, history, and science into an extremely captivating read. ( )

4 STARS for the storytelling aspect, adding an extra star for the excellent author's and illustrator's notes.This book tells so much - an interesting story, about how to come back after a defeat, about a man with a vision and how statues come into being. I was fascinated by this whole story, especially so by the article at the end of the book which is well worth reading as an adult to find out more. Loved it! ( )
