Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types

Sharon Werner and Sarah Forss. Blue Apple (Random, dist.), $22.99 (56p) ISBN 978-1-60905-193-8
In the third book in the series that began with 2009’s Alphabeasties, Werner and Forss roll back the clock a few million years to offer a spectacular alphabetical examination of long-extinct prehistoric animals. As in Alphabeasties, the animals are constructed from first letters of their names: a triceratops, for instance, is formed from hundreds of capital and lowercase Ts. In addition to familiar dinos, the team features several species that readers aren’t likely to know, including euoplocephalus and utahraptor (named for the state in which it was discovered). Die-cuts, flaps, phonetic spellings, and alphabetically oriented trivia (“Kentrosaurus was about the length of a kayak”) are seamlessly integrated into the overall polished look of this standout introduction to both dinosaurs and good design. Ages 6–12. (Nov.)
