Shelley Tanaka is the author of the critically accalimed children's book, Attack on Pearl Harbor. She has written seven books in the I Was There series, including On Board the Titanic, Discovering the Iceman, Secrets of the Mummies, In the Time of Knights, and Graveyards of the Dinosaurs.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-Vivid, dramatic illustrations are a sure draw to an already hot topic. From the Giganotosaurus rampaging on the front cover to the wicked-looking Suchomimus lurking on the back, this book will be greeted with cheers by dinophiles desperate for MORE. Tanaka's lively, brief text provides enough data to satisfy many readers, including true aficionados. While the author provides tidbits on new discoveries in the Sahara, Madagascar, China, and Patagonia, she also discusses such matters as eggs, dung, feathers, and physiology. She speculates on color, appetites, hunting techniques, the relationship between dinosaurs and birds, and extinction, among other subjects. Diagrams showing continental drift over the millennia are provided, as is a large, colorful global location map and a brief pronunciation guide. Several neat Web sites and two fine titles for further reading are worthy of attention. Of course you have tons of dinosaur books in your collection. Of course they are mostly out in circulation. Of course you need this colorful eye-catcher as well. It won't gather any dust.
