My 9 year old granddaughter, interested in dinosaurs since she could walk, received Dinomummy for Xmas. Our Santa handed it out---about the 3rd present she received. When she opened it, we lost her! She read the entire book as fast as she could, loved it and lost interest in other presents for a while. The pictures are stunning, as is indicated just looking at the cover. Wonderful book.

My son loves this book. He carried it around on Christmas day like a trophy,and read it to his siblings right away. Now he wants the adult version to learn more.

This is a wonderful non-fiction book! Any child, (or adult for that matter,) interested in dinosaurs will find it amazing and full of information.

A Hadrosaur, with nearly complete skin and soft tissue, was discovered in Hell Creek, North Dakota by a 16 year old who'd been fascinated with dinosaurs since he was 6. After he realized what he had found, he wrote an e-mail describing his discovery and including a picture, to Dr Manning, a paleontologist at the University of Manchester in the U.K.! An army of specialists soon surrounded the site. The book has pictures and descriptions of the recovery and moving of the mummy, and the results of the studies.

At the end of the book, there are pages showing the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretacious dinosaurs, and also drawings and descriptions of the various fossils found at Hell Creek.

It's also a beautiful, imaginativly bound book.

About half of this book consists of captivating illustrations of dinosaurs and the other half is photographs of the present day process of finding and analyzing fossils. The last few pages contain an illustrated glossary of dinosaurs. Certainly not an exhaustive list, but a nice spread. This book is aimed at young readers, I would guess in the 8-12 range, but even as an adult I find it interesting enough, mainly for the visual aspects. Our 2.5 year-old loves the illustrations and will listen to a "reading" of the book.

Format: Hardcover
At the age of sixteen, Tyler Lyson made one of perhaps the most amazing discoveries when it comes to dinosaurs: a highly intact and detailed dinomummy. Not just a fossil as many discoveries of dinosaurs are, this one came complete with actual dinosaur skin and possible organs! Although he had always been fascinated with dinosaurs, Tyler hardly knew at the age of six, when he discovered the fossilized jaw of a duck-billed hadrosaur along with his brother, that one day his persistence and dedication would lead to such an amazing find.

Tyler Lyson grew up in Marmarth, South Dakota, and spent a large amount of his time exploring the grounds of Hell Creek, a remote, huge area of badlands not far from where he lived. At sixteen, he discovered the dinomummy, who was eventually named "Dakota" for the state where it was found. He contacted Dr. Phillip Lars Manning, a paleontologist at the University of Manchester in the U.K., and the real fun -- and work -- began.

Together with a large group of scientists from numerous fields and eager volunteers, Tyler and Dr. Manning set about uncovering this enormous and amazing dinomummy. We can follow their journey from head to tail through stunning full-color photographs included within the pages of DINOMUMMY. Dr. Manning also describes the techniques and equipment used to unearth, protect, and transport Dakota back to his lab for further study.

For anyone who loves dinosaurs, DINOMUMMY is a must-read! This is a fascinating look into a truly important discovery, and its easy-to-read language and helpful illustrations and captions make it perfect for even the youngest reader.

I picked up Dinomummy up from the public library for my son to enjoy. My son just finished reading it to me and then got out his dinosaur card game out to find all the dino's listed in the book. I enjoyed the book as much as he did!

Dinomummy was a gift for a 10 year-old boy whose name we got for an Angel Tree. My own 10 year-old son looked through it before we wrapped it and was impressed. The illustrations are beautiful and it's well-written.
