PreSchool-Grade 4. Dinosaurs had an amazing "arsenal" of weapons for hunting and defense, as do today's sea creatures. These two large-format books explore the teeth, claws, horns, stingers, and other mechanisms evolved by these animals. Dinosaurs focuses on familiar methods of defense, such as Tyrannosaurus rex's six-inch long teeth, or Stegosaurus's spiked tail. Other methods of protection are less well-known?Barosaurus used its tail like a whip and Stegosaurus had a skull like a crash helmet, allowing it to use its head like a battering ram. The underwater world also contains some terrifying animals. Deadly poisonous stings, electric shocks, and pointed tusks are just some of the ingenious ways sea creatures such as jellyfish, rays, and walruses protect themselves. All topics are covered in double-page spreads filled with captions and vivid full-color photos of real undersea creatures and lifelike dinosaur models that will grab readers' attention. Any book that lets you look down the mouth of a Tyrannosaurus rex or a great white shark, without risking getting bitten, is bound to entice.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
