Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not every prehistoric creature is a dinosaur! Long, long ago, many strange beasts roamed the Earthandmdash;and this delightful picture book, based on the Halls of Fossil Vertebrates at the renowned American Museum of Natural History, tells their story. Fun, fact-filled verses introduce 16 animalsandmdash;eleven that are not dinosaurs, five that areandmdash;creating an irresistible guessing game about who the subject might be. Meet the Smilodon (a saber-toothed cat), the woolly mammoth, the prehistoric shark, and other creatures.

Review:

"This oversize ABC board book, created in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, features bold primary colors and realistic digital depictions of dinosaurs. Each dinosaur appears in mid-motion: a baryonyx, with tiny ridges running from head to tail, catches a fish in its mouth; an oviraptor with a hammerhead crouches over its nest; and a velociraptor's plumed tail sweeps underneath a blue letter V. An appended alphabetical listing of each dinosaur offers speculation and trivia: 'The dangerous horns on Pentaceratops's head were used to ward off attack.' A good pick for junior dino-maniacs. Ages 2 — 5. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
