The Lovereading4Kids comment

Large and extremely handsome, this book brings together a host of extraordinary creatures, past and present, on beautifully illustrated double page spreads. Prehistoric monsters share pages with their modern descendants, grouped under intriguing headings: Strange Spikes for example features a Styracosaurus from the Early Cretaceous period, alongside a Proganochelys from the Late Triassic, and a modern Thorny Devil. There are more than 250 creatures and each page presents new wonders and surprises. The layout, which has a real scrapbook feel, will encourage hours of browsing and could also inspire children to get out their pencils and start sketching the creatures. ~ Andrea Reece
