What it would be like to see a living, breathing dinosaur? This impressive book brings readers closer to prehistoric life than ever by combining the latest paleontological findings with Juan Carlos Alonso and Gregory Paul's highly detailed, realistically posed drawings of wildlife from the early Cretaceous Period. Written and illustrated in the style of a naturalist's notebook, this informative primer gives readers 8 to 12—and more than a few of us adults—a firsthand look at what it would be like to stand alongside everything from the first birds to the towering sauropods, the largest creatures ever to walk the earth, with information on the creatures' size, defining characteristics, and even their temperaments.
"Two accomplished paleo-artists invite armchair paleontologists to go eye to eye with 21 dinosaurs and flying reptiles.... Eye candy for both serious and casual dinophiles."—Kirkus Reviews
