KIRKUS REVIEW

 Sculptor Stephen Czerkas specializes in making life-sized models of dinosaurs. This book shows how he works, from the first small clay model to a full-size clay sculpture, a latex cast, a fiberglass and steel replica made in sections, and finally the assembly and mounting for a museum exhibit. Most of the color photos show ``Steve'' at work in his studio, at fossil digs, or in the museum preparing dinosaurs for two large traveling exhibits sponsored by the Museum of Natural History of Los Angeles County. While gleaning odd dinosaur facts and a better understanding of how scientists reconstruct the past, readers will also enjoy the behind-the-scenes look at a man who combines science, art, and engineering in an unusual career. Index. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
