Description Description This brilliant book introduces the dinosaurs that once roamed our planet. Using bitesize text and beautifully bright illustrations, this is the perfect book for dinosaur lovers everywhere.

The world was once full of magnificent beasts, big and small, who stomped across the land, soared through the skies and swam through waters deep and murky. Dinosaurs witnessed the shaping of our mountains, continents, seas and deserts and eventually an asteroid that would wipe out half of all life on Earth. This is the exciting and dramatic story of dinosaurs and how they lived on our planet.

Journey back in time to the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and come face-to-face with prehistory’s most spectacular dinosaurs. Read about when they lived, where they lived, what they ate and how you can see clues of these prehistoric creatures in our modern world.

With fact-packed text by Catherine Barr and Steve Williams and vibrant illustrations by Amy Husband, readers will walk across continents with a titanosaurus, stalk prey with a T-rex and care for a baby velociraptor. This is an engaging first look at the incredible world of dinosaurs, written especially for young children.
