Imagine outrunning a superfast dinosaur, just to be plucked from the ground by a pterosaur in flight. That's probably just what happened to many small prey in the age of the dinosaurs. Pterosaurs were all sizes, from creatures as small as songbirds to the biggest flyer ever known, Quetzalcoatlus. It had a wingspan of 36 feet (11 m)! Readers will get to know much more about various kinds of pterosaurs in this brilliantly illustrated book. A timeline, world map, sidebars, and diagrams further enhance the intriguing text.

About the Author:

Liz Miles is an experienced author of non-fiction and fiction. She has over 70 published titles, and writes overlooking the River Colne in Wivenhoe. Her fascination with prehistory began as a child when she picked up her first fossil on the Jurassic Coast.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-6-Visual excitement abounds in this unusual approach to nonfiction. Facts are conveyed through a fantasy journey into prehistoric times. Readers, who are addressed in the second person ("You are about to parachute from a plane down to a secret island-an island full of huge prehistoric monsters."), encounter a multitude of fascinating creatures, described in short bursts of text augmented by text boxes of statistics and a chart on the closing pages that will make clear to students that the featured creatures existed millions of year apart and are now extinct. Characterized more by breadth than depth, the books would be only marginally useful for research. Nonetheless, their adventure-packed, imagination-encouraging framework and realistic, colorful illustrations will pique interest, and the thorough list of further readings and websites encourages additional investigation. α(c) Copyright 2011.
