REIGN OF THE SEA DRAGONS by Sneed B. Collard III
CHILDREN'S
Released: July 1, 2008

"More detailed, if also more visually sedate, than Caroline Arnold's Giant Sea Reptiles of the Dinosaur Age (2007), illustrated by Laurie Caple, this look at the animals that sat atop the oceanic food chain for tens of millions of years makes a solid addition to the dino-shelves. (Nonfiction. 10-12)"
Despite occasional gore in the pictures and section headings like "Permian Wipeout" and "The Ichthyosaur Café," this look at marine reptiles of the Mesozoic Era will have more appeal for serious young proto-paleontologists than fans of violent, bloody action. Read full book review >
