Recently released in paperback, this comprehensive and easy to use book is filled with more than 400 maps, illustrations and photos as well as a wide range of material on the latest dinosaur discoveries.

Ideal for the youngster who is ready to tackle a book with more detailed information about dinosaurs, this encyclopedia is divided into five subject areas: The First Dinosaurs, A World of Dinosaurs, The Time of the Giants, A Flowering World and Change and Extinction.

The eclectic approach the author employs means that young readers will find boxes featuring information about key paleontologists and their contributions, detailed drawings of dinosaur skeletons, websites where further information can be found and special dino facts such as the longest, tallest, and heaviest creature.

Not only will a child serious about learning more about dinosaurs want to own this book but it will also be very useful for doing research for school projects. There should be a copy of this encyclopedia in every school library, and many natural science teachers will probably want to own their own volumes.
