Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6 --On the plus side, this dinosaur dictionary gives basic information on over 100 dinosaurs--measurements, time period, location, name pronunciations, and a paragraph or two explaining what is known about the creatures. This information is not very current, however; for example, no mention is made of the recent debate concerning the arrangement of plates on Stegosaurus' back. The conglomeration of pictures by different illustrators ranges from fairly good to awkward and pedestrian. Charts and a glossary at the front and back of the book seem to have been added just to fill up space. This book is a little more up to date, a little more enticing than its look-alike volume, 100 Dinosaurs From A to Z (Grosset, 1986), by Ron Wilson, but is not as informative as Benton's The Dinosaur Encyclopedia (Messner, 1984). This is best purchased for its coverage of dinosaurs such as Tuojiangosaurus and Opisthocoelicaudia, certainly not yet household words, but very likely to show up on lists of unique topics for reports. --Cathryn A.

My Grandson wanted to check this book out at the library, so we did, when we had to return it he was dissapointed, I told him I would look for this book on the internet, I found it on Amazon,. New, it would have cost me 30-40 dollars, I bought it used, and like new for $7,99, The seller was true to his word about describing the condition of the book. I would order from him again.

If your child is interested in dinosaurs, this is the book you want. My son has unlimited interest and focus on a specific topic ( also known as autism) and this book lives beside his bed.
