Description
A young bone collector and amateur naturalist in Scotland, Jake McGowan-Lowe has amassed hundreds of skulls and other bones since he began looking for them at the age of 6, and began blogging about his finds at www.jakes-bones.com. Here he takes readers 8 to 11 on a tour of his collection, describing everything from foxes, birds, hedgehogs, and snakes to leopards, alligators, whales, and even dinosaurs through their skeletons, as well as field notes, anecdotes, range maps, and photos of live animals (or in the case of the dinosaurs, realistic re-creations).

"A solid selection that should inspire budding archaeologists. [The author] presents mind-boggling information, accompanied by beautiful, detailed color images and comical sketches that will intrigue and captivate. Each spread contains a different topic ('What Are Bones?' or 'How to Recognize a Bone') as well as content on the bones of specific animals, from the tiny (a hedgehog) to the gigantic (a triceratops). Novice bone collectors will also learn what to take into the field with them, how to identify various bones, and how to determine the age of an animal when it died."School Library Journal
