With kid-friendly text and seriously silly illustrations, this fact-filled book puts dinosaurs next to modern animals so that you can see exactly how they size up. And a huge fold-out chart compares the dinos to each other, from the tiniest Microraptor to Argentinosaurus, the largest animal to ever walk the land.

"Dino-philes, assemble!" - Kirkus
When Lita Judge was fifteen, she wrote to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Alberta, Canada, and asked to volunteer on a dinosaur dig. She spent the next three summers digging up dinosaur bones, studying fossils, and expanding her imagination. Since then, Lita has continued to learn about the incredible diversity of the dinosaurs that used to roam the earth and brought many of them back to life in Born to Be Giants: How Baby Dinosaurs Grew to Rule the World. She is also the author/illustrator of Bird Talk.
