Book Description

31 Jan 2012
This is the ultimate reference to 355 dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, including more than 900 illustrations, maps, timelines and photographs. It features all the key groups: sauropods, theropods, ornithopods, ankylosaurs, stegosaurs, carnosaurs, polacanthids, diplodocids, iguanodonts, boneheads, and many more. It includes non-dinosaurs such as placodonts, mosasaurs, ichthyosaurs, nothasaurs, plesiosaurs and ptersoaurs. Expert identification text provides a description of each creature and technically accurate artworks show how each looked according to the latest scientific understanding. It features an overview of the evolution of the earth's geology, the development of life and the arrival of the dinosaurs, the process of fossilization, and development of dinosaur discovery and excavation techniques. Here is the ultimate identification guide for dinosaur enthusiasts, featuring more than 355 creatures, written by an acknowledged expert. A comprehensive introduction explains the Age of Dinosaurs and their classification and development. Fascinating anatomical drawings demonstrate their skeletal make up, and the habitats in which they lived are depicted. The main section of the book is an encyclopedia of dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures, arranged according to type. Each entry contains a description of the creature's key identifying features, evolutionary adaptations and details of the fossil evidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaur Crazy Grandson! 10 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a grandson who is nuts about dinosaurs. When I saw this book I just had to get it for him, and he was absolutely over the moon with it. I had a flick through it myself, and found that I was stopping and reading about some of the dinosaurs, and I did consider keping it till Christmas so I could have a good read of it myself, but relented and gave it to him for his birthday.
Well worth the money for anyone who has a dinosaur mad son/grandson, but beware having a quick read yourself, as it can 'suck' you in and you end up reading about dinosaurs with relish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for the Dinosaur Curious 22 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a dinosaur obsessed 7 year old boy. He loves to read this book to himself (loving dinosaurs has increased his reading age by a couple of years, this book can only help with that). He is already very knowledgeable about dinosaurs but the book managed to include information he hadn't come across before. A highly readable book for the youngster interested in dinosaurs.
