For the kid who loves dinosaurs more than anything, and the kid who has to know every possible fact that has ever been known about dinosaurs, there is EVERYTHING AWESOME ABOUT DINOSAURS AND OTHER PREHISTORIC BEASTS. Get your brain ready, kids, because you’re truly about to know everything.
Starting with the hilarious and eye-catching cover, this fantastic journey into the world of prehistoric creatures draws little readers in. Written in amazingly colorful comic-book style, author Mike Lowery still gets his fascinating facts across. What, exactly, is a dinosaur? What’s a Trilobite? And what the heck happened to all of these colossal (and some very tiny) beasts?
Sprinkled throughout the gloriously intricate pages are cute jokes and puns. How did the scientist know that it was warm where dinosaurs lived? Because there were no gloves or mittens found with their fossils! Just the kind of humor a dino-loving kid will find bone-tickling. Then there are plenty of activities and sketching lessons included, too. What more could a little dinosaur lover ask for?
With humor in spades and truly awesome, dino-rific illustrations, EVERYTHING AWESOME ABOUT DINOSAURS AND OTHER PREHISTORIC BEASTS is a winner all around and the perfect gift for the kid who thinks they know everything about history’s favorite prehistoric beasts.
