Format: Hardcover
This book features 11 unusual and not well-known dinosaurs that each have a distinctive feature - super scary teeth, horns that jut out sideways from the shoulders, an incredibly long finger, a wide mouth - and some hypothesizing on what that feature might have been good for. Each dinosaur has its own spread with an artists representation of what it might have looked like along with a picture of some representative fossils or bones. There's also an inset information featuring when the dinosaur was named and where/when it lived. More information is given in the glossary in the back, along with a grouping of dinosaurs, both strange and familiar, from the two supercontinents they lived on (and an explanation that they didn't all live at the same time).

Very informative and accessible. Every dino-loving kid, grown-up, or other should have one.

We got it for a 7 year old boy, but it is really well done. Awesome, informative book for all ages.
