Professor Denison, the intrepid 19th-century explorer, is back! Some time ago, the professor discovered a lost island where humans and dinosaurs dwell in harmony. Now the professor and Bix, his dinosaur companion, have been summoned to the forbidden empire of Chandara.
But when they lose their invitation from the emperor, the adventurers must cross the border penniless and in disguise. A vivid narrative, accompanied by enchanting illustrations, traces their journey and its spectacular sights: a village composed of three ships propped up on end, a 50-foot-tall Brachiosaurus outfitted for firefighting, an Allosaurus tending its hatchlings, and other memorable scenes.
A stand-alone sequel to the first two Dinotopia books, Journey to Chandara offers the perfect introduction to James Gurney’s fantasy world for readers of all ages. Filled with magnificent full-color paintings, cutaway views, and mechanical diagrams, this newly expanded deluxe edition includes a 30-page behind-the-scenes featurette filled with preliminary sketches, maquettes, and storyboards created by James Gurney as he developed this unique visual journey.
