Overview

The strengths and weaknesses of each dinosaur are skillfully assessed as they are pitted against their enemies to bring realistic prehistoric struggles to life in the perfect illustrated book for the young dinosaur lover!

Who was the hunted and who was the prey and what secret weapons did each dinosaur possess? Dino Wars answers all this and more! In Dino Wars, readers can find out which dinosaur would have ended up as dinner in a tremendous struggle between Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops, or who the winner might have been in the land and air battle when Pterodactylus swoops down on a herd of grazing Kannemeryeria. In this colorful, illustrated book the biggest and baddest battles of prehistory are graphically brought to life. Each dinosaur is expertly drawn and rated in terms of speed, agility, armor, strength, general scariness and special skills-and then pitted against its most ferocious enemy.

With thousands of facts on over 150 species and 200 illustrations, kids can indulge in ancient gore and learn the science and history behind their favorite creatures: evolution, habitats, physical characteristics and eating habits. While entertained by the excitement of the dinosaur wars, kids will also learn the real facts about prehistory.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-In a WWF smack-down format, Johnson presents a series of colorful confrontations. After delineating a spectrum of era-based "combat zones," she goes on to enumerate individual "assets" (strength, agility, armor, etc.) and rated "danger levels" (ranging from a paltry 2.7 for Scutellosaurus "aka Studs" to a high of 8.5 for Tyrannosaurus "aka Rex"). The featured matches span the ages from Permian predinosaurian Moschops vs. Lycaenops through a Jurassic Kentrosaurus vs. Allosaurus bout to a late Cretaceous battle between T. rex and Triceratops. In between these face-offs is a roster of would-be contenders, complete with realistic illustrations, vital statistics, distinguishing features, "combat histories," and "asset ratings." Included are marine reptiles, pterosaurs, crocodilians, and chelonians as well as the star players. Full of informative tidbits in explanatory captions and brief paragraphs of text, eye-catching with its colorful illustrations, and enticing in its combative concept, this title is not for the demander of in-depth data. However, for the dinophile, it is absolute pin-power on the page.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
