My 8-year old son loved the book and we both learned a lot from it. My son is deeply morbid; cheerful and active, but always curious about death, and the book gave him the epitaph he wants on his gravestone. "No one loved cheetahs more."

I'm so glad you liked it! I really enjoy all of Ottaviani's science graphic novels--when your son is just a little older he should definitely try "Fallout" or "Suspended in Language" (about Niels Bohr).

Love the epitaph, too! Mine would be "No one loved chocolate more."
