Meet Stegosaurus and Stegoceras (the head banger). An airborne giant, Quetzalcoatlus, with a wingspan the size of a WWII fighter. The meat-eaters: T.Rex, Giganotosaurus, and Allosaurus, who strode eight feet with every step—try out-running that! There are fish—like ichthyosaurs, including Excalibosaurus, named after King Arthur's legendary sword because of its long snout. The swift and deadly raptors. Sauropods that could strip the tops of trees, and the agile little Compsognathus, the size of a turkey. Each dinosaur is illustrated in amazingly life-like detail, and accompanied by information on size, diet, and lifestyle. The deck also includes key paleontologists, fossil-finding methods, and a glossary.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The pictures on all the Fandex books are amazing - very colorful - and the descriptions extremely detailed. Older children and adults will benefit from the information presented, while younger children will enjoy all the pictures. You can't go wrong in purchasing any of the Fandex books. I have purchased the "bugs, butterflies, and insects" series of Fandex books for my grandchildren, in addition to the "dinosaur" Fandex. (NOTE: The butterflies Fandex is a bit difficult for a child to easily close back up due to the various sizes of the butterfly wings; this could prove frustrating for a small child.)
