Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This introduction to paleontology weaves together facts about fossil hunting with fictionalized first-person accounts from dinosaur detectives. Britons Mary Anning and Gideon Mantell and American Jack Horner are among those included. The book combines their stories with a multitude of facts found along the borders of each page. The many illustrations include full-color and black-and-white photos, drawings, and reproductions. The format works well for children who enjoy browsing, and the book may spark interest in the subject. Budding paleontologists will appreciate the title's slightly different focus and enjoy the variety of information presented.- Maura Bresnahan, Shawsheen School, Andover, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
