Synopsis

I am Not a Dinosaur! by William Lach

Not every prehistoric creature is a dinosaur! Long, long ago, many strange beasts roamed the Earth - and this delightful picture book, based on the fossil halls at the renowned American Museum of Natural History, tells their story. Fun, fact-filled verses introduce 16 animals - 11 that are not dinosaurs, five that are - creating an irresistible guessing game about who the subject might be. Meet the Smilodon (a sabre-toothed cat), the woolly mammoth, the prehistoric shark and other creatures.

Reviews

. . . a picture book distinguished by crisp, marble-textured graphics and lively rhymes, written in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History. --Publishers Weekly

Dinosaurs really hog all the attention when it comes to prehistoric beasts, but this guide gives the underrepresented their due. Vibrant collage-style illustrations show off many of history's nondinosaurs on two-page spreads . . . . Lovely and informative. --Booklist
