The book dinosaurs by John Long is about the history of dinosaurs and how they came to be. Also all the evolutions that led up to the Cenozoic Era or the time period we are in now. In this book you will learn all about dinosaurs and how they came to be. If you didn't already know, crocodiles have been around for over 150 million years. Once you pick this book up you're going to gain so much knowledge on dinosaurs. It's very hard to put down because of all the knowledge. A dinosaur you might not know is the Allosaurus. Well this dinosaur can open its mouth like a snake and imagine how big its mouth is. Surprisingly only 65% of dinosaurs were plant eaters and 35% of dinosaurs were meat eaters. You can learn so much in this book. After reading this book you will understand how evolution has shaped the way you and I look today. The biggest dinosaurs were the dumbest, just like the Plateosaurus. If this scale was 1-10 I would give it a 9.5 because this is such a good books and it fits what a great book is to me. This great is great for people studying dinosaurs or they want to learn a lot more about them. Dinosaurs is one of my favorite topics and it could be yours so please pick up this book. This book isn't even that long, only 64 pages. Please if you want to learn more about dinosaurs buy this book, it will teach you so much.
