Children's LiteratureAllosaurs was one of those fast-moving, probably highly intelligent, meat-eating dinosaurs, which some paleontologists believe hunted in a pack. The author of this little book tells us a good deal about this dinosaur's body, what it ate, and why it is no longer roaming the face of the earth. He also gives us a picture of Allosaurs' world-the other creatures that lived at that time and what the world might have looked like then. Daniel Cohen also tells us where fossils of these dinosaurs have been found. The information in this book is well presented and interesting, but the photographs and illustrations are unfortunately dull and average at best. At the end of the description about the Allosaurs there is a "Hands On" activity, which helps to explain how the concept of hunting in a pack was advantageous for this dinosaur group. This activity is followed by a glossary. At the back of the book the reader will find a bibliography and an index. In addition, the author explains how to use Fact Hound, a special Internet search engine. This book is one in the "Bridgestone Science Library." 2003, Bridgestone Books, Ages 6 to 9.
