For the student looking for a book that provides factual information with a useful Internet link-up, this is it. With its easy to follow text and its use of variously-titled highlight boxes—Dino Dictionary, Factofile: The Dinosaur Age, How Do I Say That?, Where Did They Live?—Benton overviews the various types of flying dinosaurs. I found the Factofiles especially useful in the manner in which they detailed important information like diet, weight, discovery of first fossil, special features of the dinosaur itself, size, and associated group. The How Do I Say That? box was also helpful for those readers who cannot readily say the dinosaur names Quetzalcoatlus or Dsungaripterus. Then, to add to the information potential, Benton adds Internet links for each type of dinosaur from many of the best museum and dig sites around the world. The illustrations by Sibbick are the final touch in creating the visual manifestation of Benton's fact-finding. This is definitely a useful text for students working on a dinosaur report or teachers looking for a solid reference. 2003, Chrysalis Education, Ages 7 to 11.
