Artist, sculptor, dinosaur builder, and host of unusual dinner parties. The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins enlightens readers regarding the life of Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins and his much loved dinosaur friends. In the 1800’s, people knew very little of dinosaurs. Hawkin’s work changed this forever, both in England and in America. Inspired by his story, author Barbara Kerley’s biography brings Hawkins’s dreams and accomplishments to you. Illustrator Brian Selznick based many of his illustrations on Mr. Hawkins’s original sketches.
