About the Author
Dr. Dean Lomax is an internationally recognized and award-winning palaeontologist, presenter, and author. He has traveled the globe excavating dinosaurs and has described several new species of prehistoric reptile. He lives in the UK. Mike Love has a master's in fine art from the Aberystwyth University School of Art. From astronauts and knights to vampires and dragons, he has a love for working with imagination and narrative. He lives in the UK.
Filling in the spaces around Love's fetching portraits of wild and domestic modern creatures, paleontologist Lomax natters on about the main types and characteristics of cats, dogs, fish, rodents, and other familiar animal families. This information appears on the outer leaves of each double-page spread, but the stars of the show are the pop-up figures that rear dramatically with each lift of a gatefold. . . . Whether today's pets would kill and/or eat us given the chance may be a matter for debate...but as for their predecessors, readers will come away with no such doubts.
