ROBERT IR­WIN DI­NOSAUR HUNTER: BIG BOOK OF DI­NOSAURS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - BOOKS -

( Ran­dom House, soft­cover, $ 19.95)

THIS one’s ac­tu­ally been on the shelves of book­stores for quite some months now, but is worth a men­tion for the dinophiles out there. While I’m per­son­ally not a great fan of the whole turn­ing- a- child- into- acelebrity thing, the book re­ally is a ver­i­ta­ble trea­sure trove of in­for­ma­tion, pre­sented in an ap­peal­ing and ap­proach­able way for young read­ers.

There is in­for­ma­tion on a range of di­nosaurs, their vi­tal sta­tis­tics, fas­ci­nat­ing facts and note­wor­thy fea­tures, the dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods, great di­nosaur col­lec­tions of the world, re­cent dis­cov­er­ies, loads of pho­tos and il­lus­tra­tions, and a glos­sary.
