Description

This fascinating book charts the evolution of the dinosaurs and shows how different species developed and adapted in response to the changing world landscape, climate and available food sources. A clear illustrative chart explains dinosaur ancestry and evolutionary lines of all of these creatures, and lavish anatomical illustrations show the main differences between the major groups of dinosaurs. The book covers fossil finds, environments in which prehistoric beasts lived, and 50 profiles of the most well known dinosaurs. Each entry is presented with a description of its body shape and size, lifestyle, period of time in which it lived and evolutionary line, and is illustrated with precise portraits according to the latest scientific understanding. Dougal Dixon began his career as a geological consultant for a publishing company in 1973, nurturing a special interest in fossils and evolution. He is now a full-time writer specializing in earth sciences and has written many children's books and encylopedia with a special interest in dinosaurs. He has made several television appearances and acted as a consultant and animator for a video programme about dinosaurs.
This book covers fossil finds, environments in which prehistoric beasts lived, and 50 profiles of the most well known dinosaurs.

    This book is absolutely rubbish and unreadable on the iphone. I am not sure about the ipad as i dont own one. But this book is to be avoided if you are planning to do ANY reading on a iphone or ipod touch. Even at 99p this a waste of money. Why they didnt format this for the iphone is beyond me. I wish i could get my money back.
  • Incredible value, over 300 beautiful pictures

    I am the publisher of the book, just to warn you, so you would expect me to love it, and I do. I know how many people worked for several years to get the artworks perfect and the text and design just right. It was a labour of love for our company, and I hope this shows through - do get the free sample and see what you think. Author Dougal Dixon really knows his stuff, and is passionate, and can make the subject fun and exciting.

    I downloaded this for my son who is crazy about dinosaurs. He loved reading about how they lived and the illustrations are amazingly detailed.
