Synopsis

Jurassic Poop What Dinosaurs (and Others) Left Behind by Jacob Berkowitz

Left by animals long ago, some durable doo-doo has survived the long journey through the ages. It started out stinky, but now it's frozen, dried or turned to rock. This irresistible book looks at how it's helping scientists to piece together the puzzle of ancient life. Both funny and informative, Jurassic Poop is flush with amazing facts, stories and activities. Meet the dung detectives who are getting to the bottom of history's rear-end mysteries. Learn how to spot ancient turd imposters. Find out how poo gets preserved and discover what it can tell us about dinosaurs, humans and many other animals from long ago.

Reviews

Jurassic Poop works brilliantly ... Superbly organised, and written in a zippy, engaging style that balances fact with fun. You can just hear the giggles as young readers have fun while learning a lot. Quill and Quire, Toronto, Canada Jurassic Poop takes a look at the entirely respectable study of coprolites - dinosaur dung ... The visual and linguistic flights of fancy in this book are captivating even for non-fans of scatological humour. Newsday, Canada Here's a combination that can't miss: dinosaurs and potty humour. What more could a kid ask for? The Edmonton Journal, Canada Short chapters, cartoonish drawings, photographs and diagrams, along with the chatty style, expand the text and make the information easily accessed by young readers ... Scientific terms are clearly and simply explained CM Magazine, Manitoba Library Association, Canada
