Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Mesozoic era is the focus of this book¾the age of dinosaurs that began about 230 million years ago. Readers learn that the continents were not where we see them today and that the creatures that roamed the earth and the plants they ate were very different from what we now know. Diagrams show major changes on the earth and one diagram shows in more detail the various dinosaur families. Malam takes readers on a tour of the world and some of the more important dinosaurs that have been discovered. Each entry includes the dinosaur's name and a pronunciation guide, descriptive details such as its length, weight, when it lived including pinpointing discoveries on a global map, diet characteristics and some facts about the dinosaur. Colored illustrations give readers a look at these fearsome creatures, and a small inset depicts them relative to an average-size human. Malam notes that there are many theories as to why dinosaurs died out and presents the one most widely subscribed to¾asteroid impact. His concluding page presents a very brief look at the work of fossil hunters and museum conservation staff. There is an index to assist researchers. 2001, Running Press, $15.95. Ages 8 up.
