Summary
The velociraptor was a fierce predator. Though it stood less than 2 feet tall, it was capable of taking down much larger prey. But how did it hunt? What did it eat? This fascinating text introduces readers to the world of the velociraptor, focusing on what the dinosaur ate, how it protected itself, and how it went extinct. Special features, such as maps, a pronunciation guide, a diet graphic, and a two-page profile, give readers even more information about the small but mighty velociraptor!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The mighty reptiles prowling through these volumes of The World of Dinosaurs series (6 titles) hail from the late Cretaceous period, but they'll feel right at home in the hands of today's curious kids. The series' high-interest subject and graphics-forward design will catch and hold readers' attention through a variety of infographics, digital illustrations, photos, and dino stats and facts. The turkey-sized subject of Velociraptor couldn't fly, but the text reveals its feathers and wishbone signal a relationship to modern birds. All entries present the meteorite theory as the likely cause of dinosaurs' extinction, segueing into a light discussion of fossils. A final two-page spread visually recaps the book's main facts via a labeled dino diagram surrounded by fact boxes pertaining to its size, territorial range, diet, era (though, curiously, only the periods are named), and fossils. These books provide appealing introductions to different dinosaurs, but they don't go beyond basic facts for readers already in the know.--Julia Smith Copyright 2020 Booklist"
