A fascinating addition to this fabulous series about the major mass extinctions that have shaped the story of life on earth

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2021

Tyrannosaurus Rex tells the story of a remarkable predator with the strongest bite force ever recorded that dominated the world 66 million years ago but then became extinct. The Tyrannosaurus Rex has long captured the imagination because of its size and power and because the story of its extinction is unexpected.  Packed full of information written by experts and matched by amazing illustrations that bring unimaginable landscapes and the animals in them to life.

Tyrannosaurus Rex Synopsis

TV scientist Ben Garrod presents the biggest extinction events ever, told from the point of view of evolution's superstars, the most incredible animals ever to swim, stalk, slither or walk our planet.

Whether you're 9 or 90, his unique exploration of the most destructive, yet most creative, force in nature makes top level science fun.Here are the superstars of the story of life, from the super-weird to the super-ferocious. Usually a species has 10 million years or so of evolving, eating, chasing, playing, maybe doing homework, or even going to the moon before it goes extinct.

Tyrannosaurus Rex, the most famous and the most misunderstood superstar in the story life! This mightiest of dinosaurs - massive, green and scaly - or, as we now know, massive and partially feathered, with a keen sense of hearing, smell and great vision dominated the Cretaceous landscape. Everyone knows about the giant asteroid which struck Earth 66 million years ago ending the Age of the Dinsoaurs. Or did it? Collect all eight books about animals we have lost in mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega-volcanoes, clashing continents and climate change.

Also includes: * Past brought to full-colour life by palaeoartist Gabriel Ugueto * Ask an Expert contributions from leading scientists * Glossary and pronunciation guide
