"Ask Dr K Fisher about..." is a hilarious and unique way of learning about favourite topics. This innovative series uses a problem-page format to explain facts. 'Problems' are mailed to agony uncle Dr K Fisher, who then responds to them with sympathy and a wealth of knowledge. "Ask Dr K Fisher about Dinosaurs" answers the problems that plague Earth's largest extinct reptiles. The agony uncle patiently responds to each dinosaur's letter - about themselves, their peers and extinction. Dr K Fisher's replies provide a wealth of information about family life, defence, attack and dinosaur habitats.
