KIRKUS REVIEW

 Sophisticated dinosaur enthusiasts will enjoy this journey back in time to when ``We can hear the wind in the ancient forests, feel the warmth of the sun, and sniff the salt air of a vanished sea that covered what is now the Great Plains.'' The time-traveler reader can observe a giant crocodile Albertosaurus dozing in the sun, watch newly hatched Maiasaura scramble for the food their mother brings, and sigh when a meat-eating Troodon snatches up a small Orodromeus. As illustration, Henderson has created 26 believable, full-color scenes, authentic reconstructions based on fossil records. Prior knowledge is essential for full enjoyment: there is no time line, scientific names are not included, scale is not provided--readers must look elsewhere for ``the rest of the story.'' Still, evocative and appealing. Index. (Nonfiction. 8-12+)
