A Mine of Information.
Prehistoric creatures continue to attract the fascinated attention of children, reinforced by their appearance in primary school project work. This new 'Collins Gem' provides an identification guide to the most important and best known prehistoric creatures.
The book concentrates on all those prehistoric animals that were not dinosaurs from Archaeopteryx to Hairy Mammoths. It starts with an introductory section outlining, as far as we understand, when and how they lived and why they became extinct. There then follows 60 double-page spreads looking at different creatures.
For each creature there is:
- A full-colour drawing which also shows the size when compared with an everyday object
- a fact-box of key information - name, pronunciation, meaning, location, size, when it existed, and so on
- A description of the most significant features and habits
