Children: Non fiction
Children - Non fiction
Famous Dinosaurs of Africa is written for children, but has broad appeal for anyone interested in learning more about dinosaurs.
African dinosaurs are no less significant than their 'celebrity' cousins, species like T. Rex, and they are just as magnificent and fascinating. Their fossils have been discovered across the continent - from the Sahara Desert to the Karoo.
A brief general introduction is followed by short chapters on dinosaur species, among them those that were fish-eating, sociable, predatory, etc, as well as those that were cannibals, including the biggest meat-eating dinosaur of all time. Details are given about where they were found, the meaning of their scientific names, and their size and diet.
Spectacular, colourful illustrations bring the creatures vividly to life; photographs, maps and line drawings further illustrate the subject, while 'Unsolved' and 'Up close' panels add to the intrigue.
