Description of this Book

Are you curious about fossils, dinosaurs, and prehistoric life? Then dig into this stunning children's encyclopedia. This fully revised edition of Knowledge Encyclopedia: Dinosaur! is loaded with fascinating facts. Did you know that Velociraptor had three large killer claws on each foot to hunt down prey? Or that the long-necked Diplodocus was as long as three school buses? Can you imagine what a strange life it would be for Saltasaurus with no toes on their front feet? Would you believe that Carcharodon megalodon was an ocean monster with a fearsome bite at least six times stronger than today's great white shark? This dinosaur book for kids reveals more than 60 prehistoric creatures, from the age of the dinosaurs to the Ice Age. Including the Pterodactylus and ferocious Tyrannosaurus, the gigantic snake Titanoboa and mighty woolly mammoth, this book gets you up close and personal with these amazing animals. Packed with jaw-dropping 3D images, if you're mad about dinosaurs and palaeontology, Knowledge Encyclopedia: Dinosaur! is the perfect book for you. Previous Edition: 9781409354673
