Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is hard to imagine what kind of an event could possibly have wiped out millions of animals and plants. And yet, that is exactly what happened 65 million years ago. For decades, scientists have argued over what this event was. In this highly successful book, the main ideas have been brought together to offer the reader the chance to discuss and think about the theories that have been brought forward so far. The reader will be introduced to the asteroid/meteor theory, the cooling climate theory, the volcano theory, and others. These ideas are then followed by topics that discuss the various animals that followed the dinosaurs. Finally the reader can explore how we have come to learn so much about dinosaurs through the fossil record. Throughout the book there are both full-page illustrations and double-page spreads with fully annotated illustrations, text, and photos of fossils. Beautifully presented and with a clear sense of what would appeal to a young reader, this is a wonderful book for a dinosaur enthusiast. This is one of the books in the "Dinosaur Undercover" series. Readers will find an index in the back of the book. 2002, Blackbirch Press, Ages 9 to 12.
