Gargantuan creatures deserve a truly mammoth book. With amazingly huge, life-size pictures, plus 7 gigantic gatefolds, this spectacular guide will practically transport readers back to the time of the dinosaurs.Its astounding: for the first time, pictures convey the actual, awesome bulk and bigness of the large dinosaurs and present intricately detailed views of the smaller species, too. Just open up the three 8-page-long gatefolds and the four 6-page ones to see what these vanished creatures looked like close-up. Life-size illustrations virtually take you into the Tyrannosaurus Rexs drooling mouth, with its sharp teeth ready to rip up prey. Kids will love looking at the immense and thick skull of the bone-headed Pachycephalosaurus, with its bumps, ridges, and horns. The knife-like claws of the Therizinosaurus are so realistic you just might step back in fear. In addition to the breathtaking illustrations, theres plenty of fascinating background about the different dinosaur types, their shared world, their way of chatting and battling, and their fight for survival. And as an extra treat: take off the jacket, flip it over, and theres a big poster of a giant dinosaur on the reverse side.
