Dinosaurs roamed the Earth millions of years ago, but they still fascinate us today. Big or small? Fast or slow? Meat-eaters, plant-eaters--or both? By carefully studying fossils, scientists have been able to answer many interesting questions about the lives of these "terrible lizards"!
Well designed to get the attention of younger dinophiles, this combines simple answers to simple questions with big, finely detailed portraits of 17 toothy, tough-looking examples,... the vivid writing – “Tyrannosaurus was one of the biggest meat-eating dinosaurs. Its teeth were as long as bananas! Tyrannosaurus was always hungry. It would even eat smelly dead dinosaurs” - is as riveting as Sauve’s art.
Teeth, spikes, claws, horns and whiplike tails stalk across the pages in a steady parade sure to entice young dinophiles (one pterosaur is included). A closing page lists the names, pronunciations, and meanings of the reptiles depicted.
A simple question-and-answer text and realistic illustrations address some of the most common queries kids have about dinosaurs, incorporating a glossary of dinosaur names with pronunciations and a listing of dinosaur-related web sites.
