The strengths and weaknesses of each dinosaur are skillfully assessed as they are pitted against their enemies to bring realistic prehistoric struggles to life in the perfect illustrated book for the young dinosaur lover!
Who was the hunted and who was the prey and what secret weapons did each dinosaur possess? Dino Wars answers all this and more! In Dino Wars, readers can find out which dinosaur would have ended up as dinner in a tremendous struggle between Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops, or who the winner might have been in the land and air battle when Pterodactylus swoops down on a herd of grazing Kannemeryeria. In this colorful, illustrated book the biggest and baddest battles of prehistory are graphically brought to life. Each dinosaur is expertly drawn and rated in terms of speed, agility, armor, strength, general scariness and special skills—and then pitted against its most ferocious enemy.
With thousands of facts on over 150 species and 200 illustrations, kids can indulge in ancient gore and learn the science and history behind their favorite creatures: evolution, habitats, physical characteristics and eating habits. While entertained by the excitement of the dinosaur wars, kids will also learn the real facts about prehistory.
