ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- One of the excellent Lonely Planet range of non-fiction books for children, this one tours the world of dinosaurs. Arranged by continents, each of the 80 dinosaurs has a double page spread. Text is presented in boxes placed across the pages, with excellent painterly illustrations that manage to bring the dinosaurs to life, as if they were photographed in situ. There are also diagrams to show human scale, photographs of fossils and contemporary creatures, and concise introductory material. A book to be absorbed in, perfect for the young dinosaur fanatic ages 7-12.  Lindy

Travel across the world and back in time to meet the incredible creatures that once stalked our planet, including dinosaurs, flying reptiles and marine reptiles. Whether big, small, fast, slow, fearsome or friendly, you'll find it here.

Divided into chapters focused on the seven continents and oceans, we explore the most exciting dinosaurs with each given their own page or spread that reveals and illustrates their most fascinating features. Find out about the T-Rex and Triceratops of North America, the giant sauropods of South America, the marine reptiles of Europe, the feathered, bird-like dinosaurs of Asia and more.

Other topics covered include the history of dinosaur research: how these 'terrible lizards' were first identified in the early 19th century, the Bone Wars of the late 19th century when collectors battled to unearth the best remains, and how interpretations of what dinosaurs actually looked like have changed over the years, from slow-moving lizard like creatures to fast-moving feathered fiends.

Stunning illustrations and photography combine with fascinating facts based on the latest research to provide kids with a comprehensive introduction to dinosaurs.

It's going to be roarsome!
