DINOSAUR offers young readers an in-depth, gripping journey back to a time when these prehistoric creatures ruled the Earth! Each stunning spread features different fascinating species and provides the facts and meticulously researched details that dinosaur fans want to know.

Complete with beautiful illustrations and a design that captures the feel of an old, weathered paleontologist’s journal, DINOSAUR will captivate the imagination of dinosaur buffs and curious dino experts in-the-making.

The book also includes a tri-fold timeline outlining the key historic ages, mini booklets with little known dinosaur facts, and a giant foldout poster that includes various life-size dino footprints (and our relative mini-scale human size), this is the definitive dinosaur book for budding paleontologists as well as fans of every age.
