Summary

Summary

Vivid, highly detailed color illustrations on every page of this picture book show the world as it must have appeared in the days of dinosaurs. Young readers will be drawn into the dramatic story that begins with a fiery blast from a great volcano. Snake-like rivers of red-hot lava race down the mountain, and as the forest burns, even the great dinosaurs must flee. One young dinosaur is separated from its family and must struggle to survive on its own. Wildlife artist Paul Geraghty shows and identifies many different kinds of dinosaurs as he tells a story that will fascinate younger children. (Ages 4-7)

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-4-Following a format similar to the episodic Walking with Dinosaurs series on the Discovery Channel, Geraghty's brief, readable text and large, dramatic illustrations follow the plight of a young Deinonychus, separated from her family by a catastrophic fire. Readers see Talon searching for her own pack, desperately seeking food as a solitary hunter and, finally, latching on to a rival clan as she proves her worthiness to be accepted. The data presented is extrapolated from what is known and what is postulated about this species (and about other dinosaurs mentioned in the text). Young dinophiles will certainly find this title entertaining. It's slender, colorful, and readable.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
