Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Stegosaurus belonged to a group of dinosaurs of unusual shapes and sizes called stegosaurs. These dinosaurs were basically four-legged plant eaters and each had different arrangements of spikes and bony plates running down the middle of their backs. Scientists theorize that these projections may have been used as scare tactics, or to attract a mate, or as a cooling and heating system. Scientists continue to learn about these amazing creatures that lived 140 million years ago. Dinosaur enthusiasts are sure to enjoy the illustrations and charts in Schomp's richly detailed source. Even very young children will probably enjoy looking at the pictures. As part of the "Prehistoric World" series, the book also contains a glossary, index, dinosaur family tree, and a list of additional references including on-line sources. 2004, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 8 to 12.
—Laura Hummel
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Each of these titles covers a group of prehistoric creatures, with particular emphasis on one representative dinosaur. Opening with a brief scene in the present tense to introduce the creature and its world, the books then move into straightforward information about the animal and its relatives. In Stegosaurus, for example, only two other stegosaurs (Huayangosaurus and Kentrosaurus) are mentioned within the main narrative. However, full-page, full-color paintings introduce several other related species, along with captions and fact boxes that state where and when the creatures lived, but not necessarily their sizes. The texts are enthusiastic, with enough information to engage readers without overwhelming them. In each book, an appended two-page "family tree" gives a general look at classification. These titles work as effective, simple introductions to prehistoric animal groups.-Steven Engelfried, Beaverton City Library, OR Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
