  • “We have seventeen books about dinosaurs at home, and yet I feel that I must have this book when I look inside Sarah Sheppard’s Dino Deluxe! This particular title is something special, not like any of our other dino books.”

    Svensk Bokhandel, Sweden

  • What really makes Sheppard’s book stand out from the crowd is the personal appeal and the humor. The comic strip A Troubled Week at the End of the Cretaceous Period succeeds in explaining roughly why the dinosaurs died out in just seven strips and a few words. Moreover, it’s an extremely fun read.

    Södermanlands Nyheter, Sweden

  • “Pop-culture at its best! It’s impossible not to become fascinated by dinosaurs – and have your mood lifted – when you read Sarah Sheppard’s new work.”

    Mama, Sweden

  • “In an inspired and entertaining tale peppered with facts, Sheppard gives us insights into the Mohawk Gang, the Armor Gang, The Thick-Skulled Gang, and then the gang everyone’s terrified of: The Meat Gang! /…/ Dino Deluxe works both as a read-aloud title and a first read-on-your-won book.”

    Falu-Kuriren, Sweden

  • Dino Deluxe is an absolutely wonderful children’s book. Sarah Sheppard har written as well as illustrated this little piece of art. She knows her dinosaurs and takes dino-loving kids seriously. A rich nonfiction book for ages 4-5 and up.”

    Amelia, Sweden

  • “A children’s book many of us have read so many times that we can recite long passages by heart.”

    Dagens Industri, Sweden

  • “A book about dinosaurs that with its colorful design gives a different and stimulating reading experience. /…/ The amount of text and its contents suit a somewhat experienced reader, but it’s a wonderful book also for the youngest to flip through, certain to catch their interest with images that stir the imagination.”

    BTJ, Sweden

    Aftonbladet, Sweden
