Reviews

Gr 2-4-Kudlinski presents a number of early dino theories-a spike on the nose of the Iguanodon, drawings that depicted dinosaurs dragging their tails in the mud and running on spraddled, lizardlike legs-and shows, in her simple text, how further discoveries disproved these, and other, assumptions. She includes data on present-day concerns with such topics as scales and feathers, coloration, and infant care. She discusses the demise of the dinosaurs, the probable evolution of birds, and the fact that some books still on library shelves and even for sale in bookstores may be promulgating old, disproved theories. One small carp: lizards do not just "lay their eggs on the ground, then leave." They tend to dig holes or provide other shelter for their eggs first, and then, yes, they leave. Graced with colorful, realistic illustrations that reflect the text, this book is simple, attractive, and informative, and a take-off point for a discussion on the scientific method.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

?Intelligently designed and imaginatively conceived, the artwork makes the text more understandable and the whole book more beautiful.? ?"Booklist", starred review
