Synopsis

When Bugs Were Big, Plants Were Strange, and Tetrapods Stalked the Earth A Cartoon Prehistory of Life Before Dinosaurs by Hannah Bonner

A centipede as long as a couch? Trees so tall they touch the clouds? Amphibians changing into reptiles? These are just a few of the amazing life forms detailed in When Bugs Were Big....This lively new paperback tickles the reader s funny bone while imparting tons of information about the animals, plants, and bugs that lived before the dinosaurs. Children will read news reports including a weather forecast from 320 million years ago and an emergency broadcast about the swift extinction that would end the Permian period. As kids peruse Bonner s innovative combination of narrative text, engaging illustrations, hilarious cartoons, maps, charts, and time lines, they will gather lots of valuable scientific information about the amazing creatures that ruled the Earth before the dinosaurs.
