Synopsis

Prehistoric Animals by Carolyn Franklin

From the wooly mammoth's mighty tusks to the huge fangs of the sabre-toothed big cat, Prehistoric Animals brings lost creatures to life. This title describes how we know about the existence of prehistoric animals and discusses what happened to them. It looks at how they fed, what they ate and how they survived. Small diagrams show just how huge these mighty creatures were, compared to the size of an average man today. Each creature is labelled with the correct scientific name of the animal, complete with a simple pronunciation guide. The World of Wonder Series is a highly visual introduction to exciting topics and important concepts, ranging from the animals of the prehistoric world to spacecraft investigating new planets. Packed with clear information and colourful pictures, these fascinating titles help children to become experts on a whole range of subjects. Magnificent full-colour illustrations almost leap to life off the page, and see-through scenechanging acetate pages give an insider's view of everything from the innner workings of a dinosaur to the construction of a skyscraper. All illustrations and diagrams are clearly accompanied by captions and annotations, and inset boxes provide surprising facts and statistics for the factfinder in a hurry. All titles feature a 'true or false' quiz running through the book, with answers given at the end, to make the book truly interactive, along with a 'Useful Words' page and index, encouraging children to use the book as an educational resource.
