Dinotopia and Dinotopia: The World Beneath

by James Gurney
1993 Hugo Winner for Best Original Artwork

I wavered a bit on how to do this but I'm going to stand by my position of not reviewing the artwork which is what these two picture books won for. I didn't care for the text itself but, like the Harry Potter series, I'm well aware that I am not the target audience for them. If I had read them when I was ten I would have been thrilled. Still, the art is interesting and here are three samples from each winner.
