KIRKUS REVIEW

 From the author of many other dinosaur books, solid information for older fans in an appealing oversize volume with lots of color illustrations--an overview of life on earth, the dinosaurs' rise and fall, 26 species in detail, and a look at anatomy, senses, skin, life span, and migration. Dixon also discusses early fossil hunters, plus modern techniques of study, and answers dozens of questions: warm- or cold-blooded; biggest, smallest; most teeth; etc. Younger readers will appreciate helpful inserts giving names, pronunciation, size, range, food, period, and scale drawings. More text than most; up-to-date and intriguing. Marginal glossary with unnecessary entries (``hoof''); extensive index. (Nonfiction. 10+)
