Do you know all there is to know about dinosaurs? They’re mean, green and not very smart, right?
Well, this book is here to show you that you’re WRONG! But don’t worry, even the experts can’t be right all the time . . .
So, let’s uncover the truth! From fossilised feathers to long-necked lookalikes, this ingenious book is packed with so many amazing dinosaur discoveries, you’ll soon become a palaeontology pro. Including jaw-dropping research that will debunk many myths about all kinds of prehistoric creatures – you’ll never look at a pigeon the same way again!
With fascinating, friendly and easy-to-understand text written by zoologist Dr. Nick Crumpton and amazingly detailed colour artwork on every page, this beautifully produced hardback gift book with an incredible tactile cover will delight dinosaur fans of any age.
I think dinosaurs are one of those things that children can be interested in at any age and they always seem to want to know more about them. I definitely don’t know much about dinosaurs so that’s where this book, with it’s extensive range of topics, comes in handy. As you can see from the contents page, there is so much to learn and so much to look at.
What I love about this book in particular is the it aims to teach children (and adults) that the thing we think we know about dinosaurs might not be completely true. For example, I think we probably all think that all dinosaurs became fossils but that’s not true. Not all bones become fossils and it’s extremely rare for this to happen so finding a dinosaur fossil is a huge deal. I didn’t know that.
The whole book is a really great mixture of information and illustrations. Sometimes, it can be hard for children with these kinds of books if there’s too much text but I think Everything You Know About Dinosaurs is Wrong gets it just right. Not only that but the layout if different on each page and this means something new and interesting for a child to see each time they turn a page.
I have no doubt that adults will find this book just as interesting as children and I loved reading it myself!
