Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For kids interested in prehistoric creatures, New Dinos: The Latest Finds! The Coolest Dinosaur Discoveries! by Shelley Tanaka, illus. by Alan Barnard, presents up-to-date info on an ever-expanding scientific field. Readers will learn which was the biggest carnivore (Tyrannosaurus rex and Giganotosaurus are running neck-and-neck for this honor) and what the latest CT scans and computer models can tell scientists about dino vocalization. Barnard's carefully detailed illustrations and some photos of fossils complete the picture. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Just when you think that you understand a subject, someone comes along and turns everything on its head. Once upon a time we were told that the great and terrible Tyrannosaurus Rex was the biggest meat-eating dinosaur of all time. Now it appears that there is another carnivore that was even bigger, the aptly named Gigantosaurus. For anyone who has even a moderate interest in dinosaurs, this is a book to savor and delight. Which was the biggest? Who was the meanest? What happened to wipe the dinosaurs out? Were dinosaurs cold blooded after all? All these questions and so many more are discussed in this beautifully illustrated and annotated book. We are left with no doubt about the fact that studying and finding out about dinosaurs is a fascinating and exciting business. Who would have thought that you could learn so much from the fossilized "poop" of a creature that died millions of years ago? With the innate sense of the dramatic and an obvious keen understanding of how to reach her audience, Shelley Tanaka has created a wonderful book that will entertain the reader for hours and provide a great source for discussion. At the back of the book the reader will find a map showing where "New Dinosaur Finds" were located. There is also a glossary, a pronunciation guide, a list of Web sites, recommended reading, and an index. Dr. Philip J. Currie provided paleontological consultation. 2003, Atheneum, Ages 8 to 10.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-T.rex, raptors, flying reptiles, giant crocodiles, and lesser known newly discovered dinosaurs of Madagascar and China are displayed in stimulating full-color illustrations along with information about eating habits, droppings, eggs, and vocalizations. Fans of this ever popular subject won't be disappointed. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
"Like giant gaffing hooks, these claws could spear a fish the size of a grown man. Once Suchomimus had shoveled the prey into its mouth, its one hundred hooked teeth would clamp down like huge pinking shears." Paired with plenty of melodramatic, carefully detailed--and frequently blood-spattered--dinosaur portraits, Tanaka’s rousing survey of recently identified specimens and species covers every continent except Antarctica, and introduces dinosaurs in a wide array of shapes and sizes, from crow-like Microraptor to several bus-sized creatures. She also delivers "The Real Poop" on dino-dung, rare fossilized internal organs, feathers, and the most recent Great Extinction, 65 million years ago. Concluding with an annotated map, plus lists of books and Web sites, this will rivet young readers while bringing them up to speed on the latest news from the paleontological front. (Nonfiction. 8-10)
