What are the other creatures that lived at the time of the dinosaurs -- those inevitably smaller creatures that had to stay out of the way in order to survive?
There is the Hesperornis, a bird that cannot fly or walk. Then there's the pterosaur, with the wingspan of a small airplane. Strange reptiles and fish. A cross between a snake and a turtle called a plesiosaur.
You don't believe it? Look inside this book and discover the amazing world that runs, flaps, swims, screeches, cries, and honks.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- An aptly named and engaging volume that takes readers on a lively tour of the dinosaurs' world. Senses are heightened as the smells and sounds of these exotic terrains are described. The journey begins in the abundant sea where children encounter six-foot-long Hesperornis, birds that cannot walk or fly. Through swamp, forest, and upland, the mighty and the minuscule are brought to life. Lauber describes the tiny, furry animals skittering across the forest floor and points out which trees and shrubs are cousins of plants on Earth today. Many of Henderson's paintings are handsome portraits that eloquently depict the easy grace of Pteranodons and the lush, shaded forest with its carpet of leaf litter. The touches of pastel and gouache add depth and drama to the prehistoric land, sky, and seascapes. The journey ends in the western United States where the first peaks of the Rocky Mountains are starting to thrust up. Lauber then returns to the present day and describes how scientists dig up the past. All of the illustrations are captioned. A logical page layout with double-spaced text and plenty of white background makes the book inviting and unimposing. This enjoyable offering gives a wealth of information and is indexed with a pronunciation key. Most libraries will want to own it as well as Lauber's The News about Dinosaurs (1989) and Dinosaurs Walked Here and Other Stories Fossils Tell (1987, both Bradbury). --Denia Lewis Hester, Dewey School, Evanston, IL
