Encounter life on Earth millions of years ago with Age of the Dinosaur. Packed with bite-size facts and exciting prehistoric puzzles, it explains what the world looked like and how it changed, which incredible creatures, plants and animals lived there, who survived to live another day, and how scientists know all this. Each colourful double-page spread explores a different dinosaur subject, from a particular period of time or group of animals to dinosaur diets and the study of fossils. Meet the world's first known bird and the deadly animal that may have terrified the terrible T. rex. Discover who lived when and who ate what in fun dinosaur quizzes and games. Find out why all the dinosaurs disappeared forever and who survived after they were gone. With eye-catching illustrations and photographs of specimens from the Museum's palaeontological collections, this is a great first book about dinosaurs and the world in which they lived.EU Toy Safety Directive - No warning
