Waiting on Wednesday: The Dinosaur (Love #4) by Frédéric Brrémaud

Love Volume 4: The Dinosaur

Expected publication: February 7th 2017 by Magnetic Press
After loving the first three volumes, I was excited to see The Dinosaur on NetGalley and downloaded it right away.  I enjoy the storytelling using only image cells and two page spreads.  And this book did not disappoint and even included extra drawings and studies in the back matter.
It did seem shorter than the other ones though, and I don’t know if that was because of the e-format that I read it in, or it was fewer story pages, or maybe I just read it too quickly.  The ending was both humorous and bittersweet.  A good addition to the LOVE series, and I hope there will be more soon.


Life in the primordial swamps of prehistoric Earth was a daily trial of survival, especially for the smaller dinosaurs just trying to get by without being trampled, attacked, or eaten. Not even the biggest beasts were safe, as there always seemed to be an even bigger threat looming on the horizon. This exciting tale, written by Frederic Brremaud, is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci. A beautiful, powerful tale of survival in the animal kingdom that explores the all-too-identifiable, universal concepts of Life, Courage, Aging, and ultimately Love.
The fourth volume in the lavishly illustrated series of wildlife graphic novels, each following a single central animal through an adventurous day in their natural environment. Each tale depicts genuine natural behavior through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration.
