Who needs Jurassic World when the truth is this exciting? Prepare yourself for jaw-dropping discoveries, scandalous stories, and dinosaurs so weird you won't believe they're real! The tales in this dinosaur book are all completely true and many are included in a kids' book for the first time. Readers will come face-to-face with incredible prehistoric beasts including the Australian dinosaurs that fossilized into gemstones, the prehistoric shark with a circular saw in its mouth, and the relative of T. rex that was found frozen at the top of a mountain in Antarctica...
The book is broken down into chapters covering the whole of Earth's history: Chapter 1 - The Beginning
- featuring prehistoric goo and the first squishy animals Chapter 2 - An Explosion of Life
- featuring king-sized trilobites, armored fish, and giant bugs! Chapter 3 - The Age of Reptiles
- featuring spiny sauropods, pterosaurs the size of airplanes, and musical dinosaurs. Chapter 4 - The Recent Past
- featuring gigantic snakes, Ice Age mammoths and sabre-toothed cats, and the hairy primates that would one day evolve into humans!
Every thrilling story has been meticulously researched by author Kallie Moore, a fossil expert who also hosts the hit YouTube show PBS Eons
. Beautiful illustrations by critically-acclaimed illustrator Becky Thorns bring incredible prehistoric beasts like Stegosaurus and Triceratops to life for younger readers.
Unlike most kids' dinosaur books on the market, Tales of the Prehistoric World shines a light on the work of palaeontologists - from Susan Hendrickson, who discovered the most complete T. rex ever found, to Nizar Ibrahim, whose discoveries in the Sahara desert changed everything we thought we knew about Spinosaurus (SPOILER: it could swim!)
