Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures

by Emily Hawkins

Part of the Atlas of Series

Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures Synopsis

From the team behind the best-selling Atlas of Adventures comes this prehistoric journey of discovery. Travel back in time to lock horns with a triceratops, stalk prey with a T. rex, and learn to fly with a baby pteranodon. With hundreds of things to spot and facts to learn, this is the biggest adventure yet! Discover the reptiles that ruled the world in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, alongside deep-sea monsters and other incredible flora and fauna. Each section begins with an infographic map of the region it explores, followed by richly detailed two-page spreads featuring the dinosaurs whose fossils were discovered there. Come face-to-face with the shark-hunting Mosasaurus, the enormous Argentinosaurus and the ferocious Spinosaurus, and learn all about their appearance, behaviour and habitat. Lucy Letherland's stunning artwork puts you in the picture with these prehistoric marvels, as true-to-life detail gives a rich snapshot of life millions of years ago. Interesting facts and figures pepper the scenes. Did you know that an Apatosaurus was bigger than two London buses parked end-to-end? Or that Triceratops' mouth was strong enough to slice through tree trunks? Or that pterosaurs kept warm with a layer of feathery fur? A 'Can you find?' page at the back challenges you to explore the pages even deeper by locating the pictured scenes and scene-stealers. Children and adults alike will be amazed by the prehistoric adventures awaiting in this book, an essential addition to any dino-lover's shelf.

Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures Press Reviews

The colorful creatures that stalk through the oversize pages of 'Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures' have a simpler, more stylized look, but they too evoke a stunning variety of life forms. Written by Emily Hawkins and illustrated by Lucy Letherland, this absorbing compendium puts prehistoric animals on the map. It's our map, not theirs: The continents appear as they are today rather than in the landmass configurations that prevailed in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, making it easier to grasp the dinosaurs' extraordinary geographic span. Informative bursts of text and witty fillips here and there (e.g., a tiny Microraptor wears a goofy propeller hat) add fun to this engrossing volume for enthusiasts ages 4-10. - Wall Street Journal 'Where do I even begin on how brilliant this book is? I adore the Atlas of series and this Dinosaur version is superb... rich illustrations...truly engaging' * Let Them Be Small * 'The colorful creatures that stalk through the oversize pages...evoke a stunning variety of life forms...absorbing' * Wall Street Journal * 'An oversized feat of richly illustrated information' * Achuka * 'We love everything about this book, from the quirky details worked into various illustrations to the effective use of big format double page spreads to really immerse little ones' * Read It Daddy * 'A perfect gift for dinosaur-mad kids, or as a brilliant introduction for a new fan of all things scaly and scary, a clear and interesting read that could be dipped into or read from start to finish.' * BookTrust * 'perfect for any dinosaur-obsessed child. It is by the award-winning team behind Atlas of Animal Adventures and Lucy Leatherland's inky illustrations make the book a joy to look at' * The Guardian *
