Dinotopia fans have sent me amazing things.
Here, for example, is Magnolia, one of the Habitat Partners from Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time. I can imagine the parent or teacher behind the scenes, devoting hours at the sewing machine, dedicated to making books come alive for their kids.
And here's a postcard portraying “Jim Gurney’s Pet Dinosaur.” It says: “I lick e Dinotopia because it’s magical.” I can hear the parent's voice in the background saying: "If you liked the book, you should write to the author." A bulletin board in the office next to my painting studio is festooned with such delights.
