Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Here the delicate art of torn tissue collages paradoxically captures the ferocity, thunder and surprising swiftness of ancient dinosaurs. Bountiful, panoramic illustrations on fold-out flaps engulf a limited text. "If dinosaurs came back to live with us today" introduces the comparison of saurian characteristics to those of contemporary billy goats, crocodiles, ostriches and a parade of familiar animals. (The juxtaposition of pets and barnyard animals with the extravagant dinosaurs will tickle the youngest readers.) While this sound teaching technique will help youngsters to recognize and remember dinosaur types, the book's chief attraction is its art. Mullins's multi-textured compositions educe a lively, three-dimensional quality emphasizing the motion and majesty of these ever-intriguing creatures. Ages 3-7.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Very brightly illustrated, and factually informative. Can be used with the very youngest dino fans (and the bug seems to set in earlier and earlier!).
Many pages are fold-out, which provides a terrific effect for butting head-to-head Pachycephalosauruses and a marvellous parade featuring a Diplodocus, and a marvellous upright Brachiosaurus)
The book compares some attributes of dinos with existing animals, so comparison is introduced (angrier, longer, crueler, faster, louder, eat more, taller, smaller, bigger)
Shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia for the Eve Pownall award for Information Books.
The dinos are from North and Central America and Europe. I would have liked a couple of Aussie dinos included.
