The Last Dinosaurs

Dougal Dixon, Author, Douglas Dixon, Author, Steve Kirk, Illustrator Yearling Books $4.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-440-40377-7
Available to the trade for the first time, these four volumes in the New Dinosaur Library focus on the creatures that flourished during the three periods of the Age of Dinosaurs. In each of the first three titles, 11 dinosaurs are described in succinct narratives accompanied by startling photos showing convincing models of dinosaurs against equally convincing backdrops. The portraits in each of the three books are followed by several pages of ``fun facts,'' a suggested reading list, a glossary and an index with a pronunciation guide. Hunting the Dinosaurs offers an historic overview of the evolution, the behavior and the study of dinosaurs, and even includes an explanation of how Burton effects her ``photographic restorations.'' With its striking visuals and easily absorbed text, this series is highly recommended for dinosaur devotees. Ages 7-11. (Nov.)
