Description

Did you know Brachiosaurus means 'arm lizard'? Or that Megalodon was a 56ft (17m) long prehistoric shark? Or that Pteranodon had a wingspan of up to 30ft (9m)? For 150 million years, dinosaurs were the undisputed rulers of the Earth. Today, these great lizards still fire our imaginations - the names of dinosaurs are the first long words many children learn.
Dinosaurs describes the creatures who lived during the great Age of Reptiles, the real- life giants and monsters such as the Tyrannosaurus rex and Stegosaurus. Also featured are some of the prehistoric world's other most fearsome creatures from before and after the dinosaurs, from microscopic trilobites to huge birds of prey, from giant parrots to sabre-toothed cats and the woolly mammoth.
Illustrated throughout with stunning, full-colour artworks for every featured dinosaur and prehistoric animal, each spread includes easy-to-follow text, locator maps and information boxes (with size, weight, diet and the meaning of each dinosaur's name).
Including more than 80 dinosaurs and prehistoric animals and covering a span of more than 540 million years from the Cambrian Era to the Pleistocene, Dinosaurs is a lively exploration of a fascinating world.
