Scary Dinosaurs by Carolyn Franklin


Scary Dinosaurs by Carolyn Franklin

The fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex may be one of the most well-known dinosaurs but it's not the most scary! In Top Ten Worst Scary Dinosaurs You Wouldn't Want To Meet, you'll find the Vital Statistics of ten of the most awe-inspiring and truly terrfiying dinosaurs that ever lived. What was the biggest swimming dinosaur? Were there any scary herbivores? How did they die out...and will they ever come back? The Top Ten Worst series counts down the ghastliest ghoulies, the most petrifying pirates, the angriest animals, the nastiest natural disasters, and much, much more! Colourful and humourous illustrations accompany the terrifying text, which features information on how to survive everything from the worst volcanic eruption to the world's deadliest animal. Each title explores the facts and the science behind each subject as well as looking at their impact on the world at large. Topics and subjects are put in a geographical and historical context so the reader can breathe a sigh of relief if the threat is very old or far away. Captions and speech bubbles bring the illustrations to life while 'Vital Statistics' fact boxes fill you in on all the details. All titles feature a full glossary and index, which back up the scientific and historical information found within the books.
