Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This addition to the ever-growing dinosaur literature serves as a sort of "Guinness Book of World Records" about the fascinating beasts. For instance, the dinosaur with the biggest brain was Troodon, whereas Diplodocus was probably the dumbest. Detailed, colorful illustrations fill each page. A chart in the back presents the dinosaurs in relative size and also provides a timeline.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A sort of ``Guinness Book of World Dinosaur Records,'' this volume compares dinosaurs by their most distinguishing features: the longest, the biggest meat eater, the slowest, etc. Some of these superlative attributes may be fleeting (not unlike the Guinness records!); the ``last dinosaur'' can only retain its title until a more recent fossil is discovered to displace it. And some of these characteristics are pretty subjective. Can humans really know which dino was the dumbest, the best parent, or the most popular? Still, the format works well for kids who want something to browse through, and the large, full-color illustrations have the right mix of action, realism, and scenery to hold their interest. A chart places all the creatures on a time line.-Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
