Six fabulous artwork scenes are each followed up with photographic information spreads, which provide extra detail and background.

Explorers: Dinosaurs - by Dougal Dixon, illustrated by Peter Bull - is a time-travelling adventure, visiting these favourite prehistoric creatures - from huge, gentle vegetarians to dynamic pack-hunters and spectacular, bloodthirsty predators.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Newton's Book News

[A]n informative book that's kid friendly with full-page art that's so lively children will not put this book down!

 

NSTA Recommends

[T]his is like an internet scavenger hunt in book form. Although students aren't using a mouse and clicking through web pages, it is interactive and may help reluctant, struggling readers become interested in reading science.

 

Library Media Connection

Explorers is a unique references series. Along with many facts, illustrations, and information-filled pages, the reader will find more information in the borders and sidebars. . . . students will want to read it over and over, especially your dinosaur lovers.
