I never grew out of my dinosaur phase and this book is perfect for pandering to it. Excellent illustrations, logically set out with proper latin names and likely habitats of the dinosaurs plus the periods during which they existed. This is very accessible - I could have happily devoured more science as I love evolutionary biology - but an intelligent child will get as much out of this as an adult. Only quibble was that only a small portion of the book was dedicated to megafauna which is a particular interest. Otherwise I highly recommend this.

This is a handy reference book and well illustrated and laid out. Print is very small though and descriptions are kept to the minimum. I was surprised not to find the important Allosaurus in the book - it is mentioned several times but I could not find it featured. There are plenty of Allosaurids, but no Allosaurus.

my three year old grandson is obsessed by dinosaurs. I thought that this book would be too grown up for him but 'no'. He loves the dioramas and the detailed presentations. I am sure he will appreciate this more as he grows up. Lovely presentation as expected from DK.

This is one of the best books on the subject – really thorough and with lots of details on environment which I needed particularly and which few of the books made easy information to find.

Great book and arrive in good nick. Only prob was the size of text. You may need to hold the book closer if you wear specs. That said it is full of excellent pics and info.

Really good book, providing just the right amount of information without being too deep. A great book to dip in to when needed.

This turned out to be an identical book to one already owned by my granddaughter but by a differnt publisher and a not quite the same title. This was really disappointing and not good as it was a waste of time and an upset for my granddaughter. If it is a reprint of a previous book the advert should say so.
