this book goes so far beyond the movie, it's scary. Weta have come up with geological charts, creatures with latin names and mating habits, and a complete civilization. by the approach Weta takes to this book, you would believe Skull island was a real place. so for those who want to see just how deep Weta went into this book in terms of nerdy detail, then i reccommend this book for you.

I've been a dinosaur (and KONG) fan all my life. Worth every penny! For me, it's right up there with the Dinotopia series. Hide.

Since I saw the first glimps on the new Kong movie I knew I had to have this book. And I'm so glad I did!

It contains amazing details you wouldn't find anywhere else. If you liked the movie I can personally highly recommend it! Hide.
