Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An easy, well-structured treatment of an eternally hot topic, this is a likely choice for beginning readers."—Kirkus.
Kirkus Reviews
A classic informational early reader gets a substantial, long-overdue update. Kirkus criticized the 1985 edition for conveying outdated and misleading information—chivalrously leaving the stodgy colored-pencil illustrations unmentioned. All of that has been addressed here. Revised by the late Milton's brother Kent, the text highlights or at least names over a dozen dinos, from the diminutive Citipati to the humongous Argentinosaurus, "as big as a house, longer than three buses, and as heavy as thirteen elephants!" Prehistoric contemporaries that were not dinosaurs also get nods, as do modern paleontology, the great extinction and the continued survival of birds: "So the dinosaur days go on." Tempesta's cover painting of a brightly patterned Triceratops being attacked by a T. Rex with a feathery spinal fringe opens a suite of equally dramatic group and single portraits. They feature mottled monsters viewed from low angles to accentuate their massiveness and reflect current thinking about feathers and coloration. Eye candy and intellectual nourishment alike for newly independent readers. (Informational early reader. 6-8)

    She Who Runs pt 6

    It was the second monday. Carinas parents allowed her to go out with Chester. She loved his dark brown hair and the way his green eyes glistened. He actally liked her dirty blonde curly hair and her bright blue eyes. They went to Rio's Restaraunt and both had spagetti an meat sauce. " Wow you look much prettier in person." "Thank you." "So I've been told youve gotten threats." "I thought that even though you and Queenie broke up you'd still be friends." "Ho no!! She is really anoyying about the subject." After they left, she and Chester made out in the moonlight until 8:30pm so they could have time to walk home. "They are going to bomb the school on the night of the dance. This Sunday. Wanna go together?" "Sure but i may be kicking popular butt and save the school. Wanna help?" He said he will protect her. After one last kiss, they said their goodbyes.
    Go to tillys moonlight garden for next part and white fang res 5 for questions. I can not answer them all.
