Author’s humorous children’s book
Brian Russell grew up with the brontosaurus and the planet Pluto, both now extinct. Or at least changed. The brontosaurus was found to be a redundant find of the apatasaurus, which had been discovered first. So Russell wrote an illustrated a book based on his memory of dinosaurs (Thus, “What I Remember About Dinosaurs”) so his young daughter could share in learning about the giant beasts in a similar fashion.
“The Brontosaurus does not actually exist, but it totally did when I was growing up. I thought it would be fun to learn [about this] in the same progression,” said Russell. “So she has to share the disappointment of it not being true. That’s what started it.”
Anyone who has felt a bit burned by these advances in science is bound to get a chuckle out of the book. But Russell hopes that it also inspires kids and adults to continue to learn.
