Kenneth C. Davis brings the great reptiles of the past back to life with his trademark question-and-answer format.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-This clearly written series entry introduces the different species of dinosaurs, what they ate, how they lived, and why they became extinct. Although Davis covers no new ground here, the information is divided into topical sections and presented in a lively question-and-answer format. To keep readers intrigued, he includes thought-provoking queries, such as "Which dinosaur had a switchblade?" or "If the fastest human raced the fastest dinosaur, who would win?" He also clarifies the confusion about the terms Brontosaurus and Apatosaurus. Pronunciation guides are provided in parentheses next to each dinosaur name. Martin's colorful cartoons provide humorous glimpses at many different species and are in keeping with the lighthearted tone of the book. Without an index or table of contents, this book will be difficult to use for reports. Still, it provides some recent information and will appeal to browsers and dinosaur trivia buffs.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
