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.


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