This review is from: Kingfisher Knowledge Dinosaurs (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I ordered this book for my little one when she grows up... and me for now! I LOVE dinosaurs and have done so since I was a little one. Now, as a big 43 year old, I still love the subject and regularly watch Nigel Marven's follow up films to the Walking with series.
When I saw this book on the list, I had to order it and it's a delight. The key factor in its success is that it does not simply stick with pictures of raptors attacking a protoceratops or the inevitable T-Rex vs anything that moved clash. Instead, it provides insightful chapters as to how these fossils were found and how to go about finding your own dino bits.
There is a nice flow through the book explaining how the dinosaurs lived and also how they came to be fossils and plenty of detail that will keep people of all ages glued to its pages. The only complaint is perhaps it could have been longer, and maybe there could have been a few more bits on the likes of baryonyx or spinosaurus, but in reality it is a very good book indeed and great value for money.
