I have not reviewed this book for publication, but I have seen it and recommend it highly. I discovered and bought it after its review appeared in Science News magazine.

A few additional words: This is a great gift for future paleontologists. Designed for readers age 12-up, the colorful photos and illustrations are sure to appeal to readers of all ages.
