Basher Basics: Dinosaurs: The Bare Bones (Basher Basics)by Simon Basher
Synopses & Reviews
Sure, everyone knows about the physical attributes of dinos, but what about personalities to go with those prehistoric proportions? Welcome to this highly memorable one-stop guide to the world of dinosaurs, courtesy of Basher. Join the primeval party and meet terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex, huge Giganotosaurus and tiny Compsognathus. Also includes lots of information from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods, including dinosaur dinners, habitats, and fossil discoveries.
"Adding to the Basher Basics series of small-format guides, Basher introduces readers to dinosaurs, organizing them by common characteristics. The dinosaurs speak for themselves: 'With my prey cornered, I jack my jaw wide open like a bear trap, sink my top row of pearly whites in, and chop like a hatchet,' reports an Allosaurus that appears in a section on 'meat crunchers.' In addition to the lively monologues, Basher provides bulleted facts about each dinosaur, including size, the period in which it lived, and when it was first discovered by paleontologists. Of course, for many readers, it's all about Basher's distinctive style, with his cute, digital figures that look like they might have jumped out of arcade games. Ages 3 — up."
