Greek mythology and dinosaurs! What topic has more potential for piquing kids' interest? The Griffin and the Dinosaur: How Adrienne Mayor Discovered a Fascinating Link Between Myth and Science, by Marc Aronson with Adrienne Mayor, illustrated by Chris Muller, is a wonderful picture book biography that tells a scientific detective story.

Happy Reading!
