Children all over the world are fascinated by dinosaurs. Latin scientific terms and names roll off their tongues with an ease that most adults envy. "James Gurney: The World of Dinosaurs" is an introduction to dinosaurs found in North America. Gurney's playful yet technically accurate paintings portray some familiar dinosaurs as well as some surprising cohabitants of their eras, including Jurassic crocodiles, lizards, and the flying reptiles: pterosaurs! In addition to a fact-filled spread on the creature pictured on each stamp, "The World of Dinosaurs" includes illustrated sections on the making of the dinosaurs stamps, a dinosaur "hot spots" map of North America, dinosaur stamps from around the world, and a summary of the unfolding research into the origins and fate of the dinosaurs and the world they ruled for millions of years. The book closes with a spectacular full-color gatefold of the original Gurney paintings used to produce the stamp series. The lively text by Smithsonian paleontologist Michael Brett-Surman, Ph.D. and his colleague from the University of Maryland, Dr. Thomas Holtz, takes us through the endlessly fascinating world of dinosaurs.
