Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Aiming for readers who devour the visually rich nonfiction of DK's Eyewitness series, the Insiders series debuts with Egypt, Oceans, Space, and this title on dinosaurs, sure to be the most popular. The eye-catching qualities of the unjacketed book begin with the embossed, metallic cover and extend to the interior, where unusually realistic renderings of the Mesozoic's denizens dominate each double-page spread. Like others in the series, this follows a two-part format, the first ("Introducing") offering broad background and the second ("In-Depth") going into greater detail about specific topics. For instance, the first section includes paleontological periods, extinction theories, and a striking pictorial time line tracing the first bird archaeopteryx to the earliest feathered dinosaurs. The second section contains profiles of a diverse selection of species, including such popular dinos as Allosaurus, Tryannosaurus, and Triceratops. Throughout, Long finds opportunities to highlight the evolving paleontological consensus: For instance, a sidebar shows four vastly different interpretations of Iguanadon, from depictions that resemble mythical dragons to the less-fanciful view of today. Apart from the lack of information about any scientific rationale behind the reptiles' predominantly gray-green tones, this is an otherwise valuable, high-interest entry in a promising new series, reasonably priced for its detailed content and appealing packaging. Glossary and a dinosaur "family tree" appended. Mattson, Jennifer

I ordered this book for my nephew for his birthday. He asked for a dinosaur dictionary. When the book arrived I reviewed it. While it is well done, it's not as extensive as I was hoping it would be. I still plan to give it to him but am going to look for something more extensive as well.

Also very good for the parents to read as well. The author has international credibility as a paleontologist so you can feel safe that you are not reading questionable speculation, but current knowledge and understaning in the field.

My 4-year-old loves this highly detailed book about dinosaurs. I learned a thing or two about these beasts as well.
