Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Imagine a toe claw that is 12 inches in length and used in conjunction with razor-sharp teeth by a 20-foot long creature! The Utahraptor is just one of the eight meat-eating dinosaurs from the Cretaceous period (over 65 million years ago) that are featured in this book. Young dinosaur researchers eager to learn about these prehistoric carnivores may find the brief descriptions in the book fascinating. For each layout, a description of the dinosaur is briefly followed with a question. The response to the question expands on the information given. Readers may find the description in the inset interesting also. There are brightly-color illustrations along with a scale diagram to provide an estimation of the size each featured raptor. At the back of the book, a map identifies where the dinosaur fossils were found, while a timeline details when the raptors lived. Zimmerman provides a list of some suggested books and the address of the publisher's website for readers who seek additional information. The web site includes a simple crossword puzzle along with some unlabeled portals to websites that have more information about dinosaurs. Readers who are interested in other prehistoric animals from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods may find the other five books in the "Dino Times Trivia" series fascinating too. The format for the series is similar, although the theme of each book is different, as are the featured prehistoric reptiles. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
