Product description

Dinosaurs are back. Say hello to the Giganotosaurus, the Velociraptor, and Tyrannosaurus rex. Ready yourself for the deadly horns of the Zuniceratops and the razor sharp tail of the Tuojiangosaurus. But above all, be sure to expect the unexpected. Armed with a host of stunning recent discoveries, Keiron Pim re-introduces us to these mind-boggling creatures in mesmerizing detail. As we live through a 'golden age' of discovery, the rise and fall of the dinosaur is once again staking its claim as Nature's most spectacular phenomenon. For decades, these weird and wonderful creatures have roamed the imaginations of adults and children alike; now they are brought to life before our very eyes. If you think you know the world of Dinosaurs, then think again, for it grows stranger and more fascinating all the time. Filled with fun facts and gory details, with ancient history and modern discovery, and with stunning design and illustrated throughout, this book is sure to delight readers of all ages.

Author information

As a small boy in the early 1980s nothing seemed more exciting to Keiron Pim than a visit to the Natural History Museum, where he would gaze up at the Diplodocus skeleton and later depart clutching some little dinosaur-related memento: a pencil rubber shaped like Stegosaurus, a lurid poster of a Jurassic scene, or a book crammed with dino-facts. It would have blown his four-year-old mind to know that thirty years later at book on dinosaurs would be his first publication. Keiron is a writer and journalist based in Norfolk, England. Married with three young daughters, he is writing a biography of David Litvinoff for Jonathan Cape.
