Summary

Summary

The site is China, millions of years ago, where dinosaur hatchlings emerge from their eggs, then, in successive illustrations, grow to gigantic size. Death comes years later when they are caught in a flood. Final illustrations show their bones being discovered in our own era and being mounted for display in a museum.

Original pictorial treatments of places and events in history make these books as entertaining as they are informative for young readers. Each title covers a single theme with a series of time-sequence illustrations that show how one location has changed over the course of history. Each illustration covers a large two-page spread. Tabs on page edges provide identifying historical dates for each picture, and have labels to explain details in the illustration. A Glossary at the back of each book defines relevant terms.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Part of the Fast Forward series, which uses tabs on the right-hand border to allow readers to skip ahead or back in time, Dinosaur by Nicholas Harris, illus. by Peter David Scott, chronicles the life, death and enduring legacy of a Mamenchisaurus, from its beginnings in China, 160 million years ago to today, with its skeleton on display in a museum. Pyramid, illus. by Peter Dennis, tracks the architectural feat accomplished in Egypt from 2700 B.C. to 2480 B.C. and images of the pyramid still standing today. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
