Summary
e.guides Dinosaur presents the landmark discoveries of the last 200 years, goes on location with today's great fossil hunters, investigating and analyzing their finds, and follows the reconstruction processes behind the creation of life-size museum models. Dramatic illustrations bring to life the best-known finds by combining the latest scholarship and the latest, dazzling Photoshop and CGI techniques. This brand new reference series reflects and enhances how today's young researchers gather, assess, and present information. Part of DK and Google's exciting family reference partnership, e.guides look at core topics from many angles, including facts, 3-D models, data boxes, charts, and more.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7-12. Published jointly by DK and Google, this large volume in the new e.guides series is in DK's handsome, browsable format: one subject on each double-page-spread mix of text, boxed insets, gorgeous color photos, and scientists' accounts of everything from fossil sites to dinosaur anatomy. The information is highly technical, and some pages are too crammed with tiny type. The significant feature here is the book's liaison to a Web site, with keywords on each spread, linking the subject to computer animations, videos, and more. The back matter includes dinosaur profiles and brief biographies of famous paleontologists, that allow readers to access more via a computer link. Excellent for research and personal interest; the technology never drowns out the thrilling content. Others in the series include Earth, Mummy0 , and Space Travel0 . --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2004 Booklist"
