About the Author
Rachel Curtis grew up drawing and painting from a young age leading to a lifetime of having far, far too many art supplies. She uses these to make pictures of a great variety of things, from very small to very big. She grew up in Alberta, just a couple hours drive from Dinosaur Provincial Park. You can find her online at www.instagram.com/catinspats/ (or the same on twitter) where she does occasionally draw cats in spats.
"The art in this book is beautiful and detailed, providing action shots of the dinosaurs mixed with more artsy ones. It is thoroughly awesome. I myself am a dinosaur lover, and I didn’t know some of the types in the book. Not just any coloring book, but possibly the most legitimate and cool coloring book I have ever seen." —Fanbase Press
