9780060286194: Don't Know Much About Dinosaurs

  • How did some plant-eating dinosaurs "chew" with their stomachs?
  • Which dinosaurs were the best musicians?
  • How did T. rex attack its prey?

Dinosaurs were some of the most fascinating animals that ever lived on our planet. Some were huge, and some were tiny; some ate leaves, and some loved to chomp on other dinosaurs!

In Don't Know Much About Dinosaurs, you'll discover dinosaurs that had a thousand teeth, dinosaurs that could run forty miles per hour, and dinosaurs that ate an entire school-bus-sized pile of vegetables in a single day! And you'll learn how paleontologists discovered the most famous dinosaur of all -- the ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex.

Kenneth C. Davis brings the great reptiles of the past back to life with his trademark question-and-answer format. Full of cool quotes, fun facts, and detailed artwork by Pedro Martin, the latest addition to the Don't Know Much About® series brings out the paleontologist in everyone.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-This clearly written series entry introduces the different species of dinosaurs, what they ate, how they lived, and why they became extinct. Although Davis covers no new ground here, the information is divided into topical sections and presented in a lively question-and-answer format. To keep readers intrigued, he includes thought-provoking queries, such as "Which dinosaur had a switchblade?" or "If the fastest human raced the fastest dinosaur, who would win?" He also clarifies the confusion about the terms Brontosaurus and Apatosaurus. Pronunciation guides are provided in parentheses next to each dinosaur name. Martin's colorful cartoons provide humorous glimpses at many different species and are in keeping with the lighthearted tone of the book. Without an index or table of contents, this book will be difficult to use for reports. Still, it provides some recent information and will appeal to browsers and dinosaur trivia buffs.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
