TOP 500 REVIEWERon 9 July 2016
This is short but interesting book - which is a tie-in to the BBC's "Walking with Dinosaurs" project. The author, Dave Martill, presents the facts and arguments which underlie the ideas featured in this elaborate natural history documentary series. As such, the claims offered in the series are explained (and defended) in this book.

It's well-written, and is intended for young readers (especially children age 11+), although it's also suitable for adults. Each piece of evidence is identified and discussed, and - where appropriate - photos (including images from the series) are included.

While this is certainly not a thorough examination of the available evidence, it's nonetheless a fun read - and I recommended it to anyone who enjoyed the TV series and is interested in finding out more about the dinosaurs featured in it. If you enjoy this book, I also recommend The Walking with Dinosaurs: the Facts.

We are broke and didn't want to get each other Christmas presents but then my husband caved and we succumbed to peer pressure. So we had to find each other a present for a quid or less (not including postage)

This cost me a penny, and he loves it!
(Incidentally, I got A Christmas Carol by Dickens as my gift and it cost 99p so I won the challenge.)

This is definately a book for anyone who is interested in learning more about how the animals in Walking With Dinosaurs lived and where the evidence for the events in the programme came from. Not only does it give a fascinating insight into the programme itself, but it provides the reader with far more information than the programme had the time to do. There are information filled secions about all the animals featured in the programme from the early anscestor of the Crocodilians, postosuchus, to the allosaurs and the gigantic creatures that lived in the oceans. The computer-generated images from the TV series complete the book providing brilliant and realistic images of the dinosaurs and the creatures that lived at the same time as they did. It also gives more information about the animals the series didn't cover in detail, such as the early snakes and crocodiles and the sharks. It explains how they found out what the dinosaurs ate and what ate them, just how big they were, and finally the evidence for what killed them. How Did They Know That? Read this book and you will soon find out.

Easy to read and digest, all these ideas are put across with a view that you don't need to have a degree in palaeontology to understand. The layman's presentation.
