Synopses & Reviews
Renowned muralist and illustrator Harry Robins captures the world of dinosaurs with vivid, four-color artwork and charming verses structured around the 26 letters of the alphabet. Each of the quatrains (one for each letter of the alphabet) accompanies a detailed illustration portraying a different dinosaur, and starts with an ornamental capital letter incorporating another depiction of the creature. Both informative and playful, the book takes readers young and old from A for Allosaurus to Z for Zuniceratops. Robins works from the latest scientific information about the dinosaurs shown, and an engaging "Notes" section provides background on each of the verses.
Detailed illustrations and fact-filled notes enhance this colorful alphabet book that provides an A-to-Z listing of dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes, from the Allosaurus to the Zuniceratops.
