Did Anyone Else Have Dinotopia Books8,546 Views19 RepliesAdd A Reply
The children’s book series, Dinotopia by James Gurney, has recently come back into my mind. While the stories of the books aren’t as good quality as they seemed when I was younger, the art has always been good.
Note on accuracy: The Series started in the early 90’s and gets more accurate so don’t freak out about that.
I was just wondering for I was alone in having these books or if anyone else had them.
My only complaint is that the series never included the spinosaurus, my favorite dinosaur.
so just me then
these advertisements are getting smarter
In resistance to the Small signatures I will now just type mine!
I like plows because they plow things.
Dinotopia, this brings me back to my childhood, I even still have the dinotopia mug. Picture is fading and the lip has since chipped.
I even saw the crappy disney mini-series, I would love to own a Dinotopia book
theres a disney show?
Yes, well technically ABC, back in the early 2000's
Huh, I didn't even know it had sequel series until now
wasn't there a hallmark series (i saw it on Billiam's channel)
This is the one, it was a joint Disney and Hallmark production that aired on ABC
I just found out they made a cartoon movie, the box art looks eerily similar to The Land Before Time
Damn, wasn't expecting the pictures to be this big!
I need to get back into reading the books, I didn't even know they had novels too this series nor video games. I only read the first BOOK!
I dont think ill be watching that now
i would, just to see what it's like
I remember in the live-action series they made the mosasaurus basically crocodiles with their more crocodilian appearance and having legs instead of flippers. They made the dimorphodon into a bird rather than a pterosaur and even called the pterosaurs, birds! Did anyone at Disney or Hallmark ever cared to pick up and skim through a dinosaur book or was that too much work?
too much work. Disney has several other studios it needs to buy, and Frachises to start, destroy, or confuse.
I am not looking forward to a Disney Era ALIEN nor PREDATOR, I sure hope Disney doesn't have Jurassic Park in their sights! Marvel's ALIEN comics is just sad, I wish Dark Horse could reclaim the ALIEN comics property.
Back to Dinotopia, yeah the Disney adaptation as far as the mini-series was concern was horrible. I have never seen the sequel Tv series, I guess I dodge a bullet there.
My grandfather Anthony Crawford was the head of Crawford House publishing who published the book. I have a very special limited edition version.
