The Lovereading4Kids comment

Visually alive, original and information rich, this handsome book will fascinate budding young palaeontologists. It speaks directly to the reader, placing them in the heart of the action, ‘As you travel through the Triassic landscape you notice it’s dry and sandy …’, providing close up encounters with dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Readers travel on from the Triassic age through the Jurassic ages and finally into the Cretaceous period, and it’s an information-packed journey. The text explains clearly why dinosaurs ruled the earth for so long. The illustrations are eye-catching, the dinosaurs vivid, almost fluorescent, in red, green, yellow, pink and blues (after all, no-one knows what colour they were). Stunning to look at and fascinating reading. ~ Andrea Reece
