Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures

Publisher: Wide Eyed Editions


Millions of years ago, the world was very different than it is now – even in terms of how a map of the world looked. In the Triassic period, the world was one large supercontinent called Pangaea, which, over millions of years, separated into Laurasia and Gondwana in the Jurassic period, and then into the more recognisable continents we know today.

Alongside these shifts of land and sea, dinosaurs, pterosaurs and marine reptiles covered the earth, skies and oceans in huge numbers and varieties before dying out in the Cretaceous period. Hawkins and Letherland’s fantastically large hardback details some of the dinosaurs that inhabited the different land regions over the different eras, with Lucy Letherland’s distinctively lush and graphic illustration presented in a double-page spread for each dino and its environment. Discover Nothronychus, who lived in New Mexico, USA, or perhaps Baryonyx, the river-fishing predator that populated Surrey in the early Cretaceous, and many more in Africa, Australia and worldwide.

A perfect gift for dinosaur-mad kids, or as a brilliant introduction for a new fan of all things scaly and scary, this is a clear and interesting read that could be dipped into or read from start to finish.
