Synopses & Reviews
The dinosaurs of the Cretaceous period come to life in this expandable accordion book that provides a 3-D view of more than a dozen prehistoric creatures. Beautiful, scientifically accurate illustrations include the stars of the dinosaur world, including the three-horned Triceratops and the huge carnivore Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as the lesser-known Styracosaurus, or "spiked lizard," with horns sprouting from its head and neck. A 16-page guide to the Cretaceous period and its dinosaurs is also included.
