Giant Sea Reptiles of the Dinosaur Age

Overview

Throughout the Dinosaur Age, enormous reptiles called ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and mosasaurs swam the seas. Some of these massive creatures weighed more than 20 tons. Others had snake-like necks as long as 23 feet. From Kansas and Canada to Antarctica and New Zealand, fossil bones of these real-life sea monsters have been found.

Acclaimed science author Caroline Arnold and noted natural-history artist Laurie Caple pair up once again to show how fossil evidence worldwide is helping us learn about these amazing reptiles. Featuring eerily beautiful illustrations that bring “fossil creatures” to life, this thoroughly researched book gives insight into what Earth was like when prehistoric predators roamed the seas.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Arnold reteams with Caple for a look at prehistoric creatures that swam the seas ... always interesting." Booklist, ALA

"Arnold has taken an immense amount of data and organized it in an appealing format." School Library Journal

School Library Journal

Gr 3-6
More than 220 million years ago during the Triassic period, ichtyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and mosasaurs were the largest marine reptiles. Readers learn what is known about these massive creatures and how scientists are continually making new discoveries based on fossil remains throughout the world. Arnold points out that even the scientists' thought processes have changed over time as additional discoveries are made. Chapters include the diet of these early reptiles and body features, including their size, birth, known range, and period in which they died out. Museums that have displays of these marine reptiles and an extensive index are included. Caple keeps the watercolor paintings subtle and subdued with earth tones of blue, green, and brown softly portraying features of each creature. Arnold has taken an immense amount of data and organized it in an appealing format. This book has some meat to it.

Meet the Author

Caroline Arnold always loved books, but as a child she never thought of writing as a career. Born in Pittsburgh, she grew up in Minneapolis and studied art at Grinnell College and the University of Iowa. "It was only after my children were born that I became acquainted with children's books and it occurred to me that I could use my training to become a children's book illustrator. I soon realized that I needed a text to go with the pictures, and the more I wrote, the more I realized that I liked writing as much as or more than drawing. I've always been fascinated by the natural world and love to go to the parks and museums. Perhaps that is why so many of my books are about scientific topics." Arnold is now the award-winning author of more than 100 books for children. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, a neuroscientist, and teaches writing at UCLA Extension.
