A low roar rumbles through the forest. A Tyrannosaurus rex is on the move! What unlucky dinosaur will be its next meal? The ferocious T. rex is famous for its long, sharp teeth. But what other traits does it have? This thrilling title uses engaging text and vibrant illustrations to explore the life of the T. rex, from how it hunted and what it ate to how it went extinct and who found the first T. rex fossils. Special features include maps, a pronunciation guide, a diet graphic, and a two-page profile to support the key points of this high-interest text on the fierce T. rex!
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. Tyrannosaurus Rex highlights the large brain and sophisticated inner ear of this famed carnivore, which was both a predator and scavenger. 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"
