The Lovereading4Kids comment

A book to treasure, this is an in-depth look at the creatures of the pre-historic world with stunning, carefully drawn illustrations capturing the details of how they would have looked. Much of the geology and biology of the planet from the very earliest moments of its creation has now been reconstructed. From this evidence the detailed texts and beautiful illustrations have been created. The special characteristics of the creatures of the sea, land and air are all included. Taken together, they give an amazing account of the earliest life on earth.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
