Giant Plant Eaters

Giant Plant Eaters

by James Field (Illustrator), Michael J. Benson

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Young paleontologists will enjoy this informative book about sauropodomorphs, the giant plant eaters. This group includes the sauropods and the prosauropods. From the Jurassic to the Cretaceous period, readers will learn many interesting facts about this particular group of dinosaurs. For example, the biggest sauropods weighed around fifty-five tons, compared to the typical meat-eating dinosaur, which weighed only two or three tons. (An elephant weighs four or five tons.) In order to maintain their massive size, many of them probably never stopped eating. Each two-page spread is filled with colorful detailed illustrations. The text is large and easy to read with quizzes, question-and-answer boxes and "awesome" facts scattered throughout the book. A glossary and index are included, making this a great resource for a home or school library. Part of the "Awesome Dinosaurs" series. 2001, Aladdin Books, $22.90. Ages 6 to 10.
