Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "If dinosaurs lived long ago, how do we know about them? What happened to all the dinosaurs? In this inviting, exciting dinosaur book, questions like these, as well as their informal but never condescending answers, show scientific research in action. Along with a headline-style question and its response, each double-page spread includes dramatic paintings of dinosaurs in action, photos of fossil sites and museum exhibits, and Internet links to the Smithsonian Web site. Readers will be gripped by the detailed facts about particular species, such as the theories about how Tyrannosaurus rex used its teeth, and by the discussion about why dinosaurs became extinct. Great for sharing with young dinosaur fans, this entry in the Smithsonian Q&A series will also grab older grade-schoolers with its substantive information. Extensive back matter includes an interview with a Smithsonian paleontologist and a detailed time line, glossary, and bibliography of books and Web sites.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
