With superb illustrations—including both photos and photo-realistic renderings as well as drawings and paintings—this book for readers 9 to 12 takes a detailed look at how we guess what dinosaurs looked like from the fossils they've left behind. Also the author of the Sibert Medal winner Team Moon, Catherine Thimmesh explains the talents of paleoartists, and how they use art, imagination, and scientific processes to help bring us face-to-face with Triceratops, Velociraptor, and Tyrannosaurus rex.
"Readers will come away from this excellent book with a new appreciation for dinosaur imagery and for the talented paleoartists who produce it."—Horn Book Magazine (starred review)
"A stellar look at the methods paleoartists employ to bring dinosaurs to life on paper.... A terrific package that will draw in browsers and serve report writers while inspiring young artists to consider applying their skills to this enthralling field."—School Library Journal (starred review)
