Overview

Here's the ultimate guide for the young dinosaur enthusiast who craves the latest information from the lost world of prehistoric animals. With its winning combination of dramatic artwork, and exciting, narrative text, this title goes far beyond the basic facts about dinosaurs, presenting up-to-date information from dinosaur experts and realistic color illustrations by top dinosaur artists. Find out where the world's most important excavations are located and how scientists piece together tiny clues that help them reconstruct these incredible beasts. See Oviraptors babysitting their young in late cretaceous Mongolia. Escape from a pack of Deinonychus in prehistoric Wyoming. The colorful spreads include a geological time-scale that helps the inquisitive reader locate the appearance of the various species of dinosaur. Finally, discover how some of the creatures that shared the dinosaurs' world survived the catastrophe that experts believe led to the dinosaurs' extinction. A special reference section at the end of the book provides an at-a-glance family tree of these fascinating prehistoric animals, along with a helpful illustrated glossary and index.

Illustrations and text look at how dinosaur remains have been excavated and studied, what we know about how dinosaurs lived, about related prehistoric creatures, and about why dinosaurs are extinct.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's LiteratureThis small volume is stuffed full of information sure to satisfy young dinosaur aficionados.
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
One of the Kingfisher "First Facts" series, this small volume is stuffed full of information sure to satisfy young dinosaur aficionados. Each topic is covered in a two-page spread accompanied by bright illustrations. Rather than limiting discussion to the different types of dinosaurs, the subjects include speculation about the social life of dinosaurs, how they were discovered, how birds are thought to have evolved, etc. Each section is followed by a series of "amazing facts" to provide additional historical context. The index has a pronunciation guide to help with the tongue-twisting names. 1994 (orig. 1992, reprint
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Benton covers lots of recent revisions in dinosaur theory in this attractive resource. Readers will find clear explanations of the debate over whether dinosaurs were cold or warm-blooded; whether or not they were related to birds (and also mammals and reptiles); and the various hypotheses of what led to their extinction as well as discussions on anatomy, birth and death, eating, hunting, and self-defense. What really makes this book, however, are the vivid full-color drawings at every turn. For example, a small cross section of a dinosaur's stomach shows how swallowed stones called gastroliths helped grind up the creature's food. A double-page illustration of a Tyrannosaurus rex helps explain dinosaur anatomy, while a look at two skulls demonstrates how some dinosaurs made trumpeting noises through extended nose holes. Plenty of attention is given to the step-by-step process of fossil discovery and recovery, from field work to museum assembly. Try the Macmillan Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animals (Macmillan, 1988) for specifics on individual dinosaurs. This book provides quite a spark to fuel the fires of paleontological excitement.-Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
