This book is great fun and huge! It is the tallest book I own - and I have some giants. The pictures and detail is fantastic and its an intersting read.
Review by nmele
Flip through this book first--notice the large, detailed graphics of what dinosaurs may have looked like--the ruffs and crests of feathers, the heavy bodies, the wealth of predators and prey, each filling a different niche. Then, go through it slowly, savoring the brief summaries of the state of the world in the different eras of dinosaur time, also illustrated and noting the little details accompanying each glossy picture of a dinosaur: I particularly liked the small graphic comparison of dinosaur size to human size.
