If you're anything like me (I.e. A life-long dino fan born in the 1980s), you probably grew up with Zallinger's work in general & "Prehistoric Animals" (henceforth PA) in particular. Bakker's "Prehistoric Monsters" (henceforth PM) is basically an updated version of PA. In fact, despite being 8 pages shorter & not illustrated by the author (which are my only gripes), PM is even better than PA: For 1, PM's text is more concise (E.g. Google "Prehistoric CSI: Dr. Bakker's new book: Prehistoric Monsters!" & in the 1st link, see the 3rd image down; PM does in 2 pages what takes PA 4 pages to do); For another, PM's paleoart is more realistic (I.e. To paraphrase Switek, "[Rey's] animals run, swim, breach, flap, chomp, skitter, and lope through the landscapes, giving the viewer the impression that they're really watching a prehistoric scene rather than an obedient dinosaur posing for the artist"); For yet another, PM is more complete overall, covering a greater length of geologic time (3+ billion years vs. 500+ million years) & a greater variety of animal life, especially invertebrates. In short, PM is the best introduction to the history of animal life on Earth for younger kids.

Format: Paperback
The 2008 book is excellent but for what reading group. It looks like a young child's book but the content is for an olderrchild or even adults. Some of the concepts will not be grasped. At times the language is basic. It would seem to be information for someone who has limited knowledge. Possibly 10-12 year old reader?
