What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
The non-negotiable Fandex, the one every kid will have to have—hand-held dinosaurs. Marrying the latest in science and dazzling, custom-designed full-color art with the irresistible die-cut Fandex format, Dinosaurs is the perfect addition to the series that now has over 3.3 million copies in print. Written by Owl Puke author Jane Hammerslough, it brings to budding paleontologists' fingertips a wealth of information about 46 fascinating dinosaur species: period, name, size, diet, lifestyle, and habitat, along with lore and the story behind the dinosaur's discovery.

Meet Stegosaurus and Stegoceras. Quetzalcoatlus, with a wingspan the size of a WWII fighter plane's. The tanklike Edmontonia, and the predators, including T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Allosaurus, who strode 8 feet with every step—try out-running that! Plus, why there is no longer a Brontosaurus (because it turned out to be the same animal as the Apatosaurus), how Jurassic Park got it right—and wrong (Dilophosaurus was a fierce predator, but did not spit venom), and is the Plesiosaur alive and well—as the legendary "Nessie" of Loch Ness? Includes information on key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary of dinosaur words.

    Great for the dinosaur loving kid (or adult!) in your life!

    The pictures on all the Fandex books are amazing - very colorful - and the descriptions extremely detailed. Older children and adults will benefit from the information presented, while younger children will enjoy all the pictures. You can't go wrong in purchasing any of the Fandex books. I have purchased the "bugs, butterflies, and insects" series of Fandex books for my grandchildren, in addition to the "dinosaur" Fandex. (NOTE: The butterflies Fandex is a bit difficult for a child to easily close back up due to the various sizes of the butterfly wings; this could prove frustrating for a small child.)
