Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From the team behind the best-selling Atlas of Adventures comes this prehistoric journey of discovery. You'll get to embark on over thirty dinosaur adventures that will take you all around the world! Travel back in time to lock horns with a triceratops, stalk prey with a T-Rex, and learn to fly with a baby Pteranodon. With hundreds of things to spot and facts to learn, this is the biggest Atlas adventure yet!
Review Quote*"A world tour of reconstructed prehistoric landscapes based on modern fossil discoveries.Going continent by (modern) continent in a series of big, populous maps and full-spread scenes, Hawkins and Letherland feature 31 dinosaurs or prehistoric reptiles but add dozens of others-all identified, supplied with quick descriptive notes, and depicted in a simplified but reasonably realistic style. This adds up to a weighty bundle of names and facts, but the authors compensate by not taking their enterprise too seriously. Readers won't soon forget, for instance, that the "massive droppings" of T. Rex "were as long as a human arm," and sharp-eyed viewers will notice a Ceratosaurus carrying a butterfly net to bag prey, both a toothy T. Rex and a Giganotosaurus with napkins tied around their necks, and smaller hunters sporting the odd pith helmet or kerchief...A catastrophic meteorite (with proper references to the contemporaneous volcanism) brings both the era and the tour to a close. A big, breezy banquet of dino facts-and factoids."- Kirkus Reviews
Review Quote*"Around the world and through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous eras, dozens of dinosaurs, reptiles, and prehistoric creatures forage, nest, migrate, and battle, in Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures. A multifaceted catalogue of facts and wildlife commentary highlighted by Lucy Letherland's colorfully detailed artwork, the book features the exciting daily challenges faced by herds of Zuniceratops or scavenging Giganotosaurus along with evolving landscapes and geography, from fossil sites in India and Zimbabwe to Dinosaur Ridge, Colorado." - ForeWord Reviews
