Synopsis

Go back in time to the 'Age of the Dinosaurs' and unearth some incredible, terrifying and fascinating beasts.

This book will make you feel like you really are walking with the dinosaurs. The highly detailed illustrations have been carefully researched to give as accurate a picture as possible of what scientists think these now extinct animals looked like. Dino-mad kids will love to pour over the pictures, spotting details and immersing themselves in a world that is both strange and familiar.

The text is engaging and easy to read, and full of brilliant information that will inspire readers to find out even more about our prehistoric planet. Readers will find out what we do know about dinosaur evolution from fossils and other evidence. They will discover how dinosaurs defended themselves from even bigger dinosaurs (such as the terrifying Tyrannosaurs) and the other body adaptations that they used for eating, hunting and attracting a mate.

A timeline breaks down the eras and periods into a handy visual guide. All the dinosaurs that feature are shown on the timeline, which provides a much better sense of their time on Earth and the vast amount of time that their existence spanned in the hundreds of millions of years before humans had even evolved.

The Prehistoric Life series looks at life in the prehistoric era as a whole. The books will captivate children and adults alike, and are useful for schools studying history chronologically. Suitable for children aged 7+

Prehistoric Life is a series of four books:
Dinosaurs
Insects, Bugs and other Invertebrates
