Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Redmond tells the story of how 12-year-old Mary Ann Anning and her dog Tray found numerous dinosaur fossils in England in the early 1800s. Beginning with a clear definition of fossils, the text describes how the companions searched the seaside cliffs, Tray using his sense of smell and Mary Ann employing the tools of a paleontologist (a small hammer and chisel). The fossils they helped to recover are on exhibit in London's Natural History Museum. The illustrations are simple and cartoonlike. This easy-to-read book can be used to introduce more in-depth titles on the subject.-Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
