Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring more than 600 questions about dinosaurs—such as What dinosaurs are thought to have evolved into birds? Did dinosaurs travel in herds? and Where and what is the Dinosaur Freeway?—this fun-filled fact-book provides a wealth of information on the lives and habits of these astonishing creatures. From the Tyrannosaurus rex to the Stegosaurus, the guide profiles numerous species, chronicling their time on earth and exploring their roles in archaeological expeditions and museums today. Delightful and intriguing, this comprehensive record includes the debates still surrounding the origins and fate of these creatures that dominated the earth for millions of years but seemed to disappear in the blink of an eye.

Book News Annotation:

New dinosaur-related discoveries and controversies over their interpretation are incorporated in this update of the 2000 edition. In question-and-answer format, a couple of popular science writers trace the rise and demise of dinosaurs and their possible evolution into birds, from what has been learned through study of their fossils. The engaging book includes color illustrations and annotated resources. Distributed by Independent Publishers Group. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
