In the middle of a quiet forest, a triceratops holds it ground against a ferocious T. rex. Who will come out on top? As the T. rex draws closer, the triceratops flashes its wide frill and three sharp horns. Victory! The triceratops had many predators. It used its tough body to scare off enemies. This fascinating text dives deep into the world of the triceratops, exploring how it survived, what it ate, and how it went extinct. Special features, including maps, a pronunciation guide, a diet graphic, and a two-page profile, will give readers even more information about the powerful triceratops!

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. A familiar three-horned, hooded face bursts through the rocky cover of Triceratops, which offers insight into the possible functions of these distinctive facial features. 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"
