Read an Excerpt

Dear Reader,

In this book I have illustrated and presented a few of the countless amazing creatures that once roamed the earth.

Some of them lived a long time ago, while others lived until very recently.

I hope that you enjoy the book, learn something new, and are reminded of the beautiful, complex, and delicate history of this world.
