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

In the same vein as Animals, discover terrifying teeth, huge horns, extraordinary necks and so much more. With more than 150 lavishly illustrated animals from the past and present, there is so much to look at and discuss. This book features 64 pages of zoological wonders that will delight animal lovers, dinosaur fans and fantasy creature enthusiasts alike.
With 64 pages of zoological wonders to delight animal lovers, dinosaur fans and fantasy creature enthusiasts, there's lots to discuss and enjoy - and hopefully, will inspire readers to go off and learn more about them too. Parents in Touch
