Here's the ultimate guide for the young dinosaur enthusiast who craves the latest information from the lost world of prehistoric animals. With its winning combination of dramatic artwork, and exciting, narrative text, this title goes far beyond the basic facts about dinosaurs, presenting up-to-date information from dinosaur experts and realistic color illustrations by top dinosaur artists. Find out where the world's most important excavations are located and how scientists piece together tiny clues that help them reconstruct these incredible beasts. See Oviraptors babysitting their young in late cretaceous Mongolia. Escape from a pack of Deinonychus in prehistoric Wyoming. The colorful spreads include a geological time-scale that helps the inquisitive reader locate the appearance of the various species of dinosaur. Finally, discover how some of the creatures that shared the dinosaurs' world survived the catastrophe that experts believe led to the dinosaurs' extinction. A special reference section at the end of the book provides an at-a-glance family tree of these fascinating prehistoric animals, along with a helpful illustrated glossary and index.
