Publisher's Synopsis

Explore the science behind the world of the dinosaurs in this fantastically funny first introduction to palaeontology!

Travel back to the Mesozoic era and find out about the dinosaurs incredible features and adaptations. Learn about the sauropods' hollow neck bones, the armoured dinosaurs and the weapons dinos had to defend themselves. Find out how dinosaurs were also show-offs displaying colourful feathers, impressive crests and frills.

For budding palaeontologists aged 6 and up, this series will explore all things dinosaur: from fossil finds and coprolites (that's poo) to exploring the mind-boggling stats of these huge reptiles. But let's not forget the science too, as we'll be learning about dinosaur biology, motion, evolution, classification, among other things along the way.

Humorous illustrations and speech bubbles will take this exciting topic to the next level!

Written by Dr Dave Hone, palaeontologist and senior zoology lecturer at Queen Mary University of London; a specialist in the behaviour of dinosaurs and pterosaurs who has named 18 species of extinct reptile to date.
