Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures

Publisher: Pavilion Books

Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus… If you think you know dinosaurs, you might be in for a surprise with this beautifully illustrated large-format picture book. Beginning with a helpful introduction to dinosaur classification, a host of weird and wonderful inhabitants from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods make their appearance on the following pages. Had you heard of a Pachycephalosaurus or a Machairoceratops? Did you know that there were Welsh and Chinese dinosaurs, or one with a trumpet on its head?

Each creature is accompanied by some fascinating and funny insights into its behaviour, which will keep dinosaur fans occupied for hours. But it is the stunning double-page watercolour illustrations which transform this book into something truly special. Author and illustrator Matt Sewell has been inspired by the most up-to-date scientific discoveries and theories, filling the pages with gloriously colourful creatures almost beyond our imagination.

Perfect for dipping in and out of, this is a book to share with readers of all ages.
