Summary: From an Aardonyx to a Zuniceratops, read about when dinosaurs lived, where they lived, what they ate and so much more!  This book is incredibly comprehensive, and includes such incredible illustrations by Dieter Braun.  His artistic style is similar to Owen Davies, and we can’t get enough of either!  This book includes every dinosaur that’s ever been discovered.  The hardcover edition is hefty, but not too big.  It has a lovely color scheme and makes learning about these prehistoric friends easy and engaging.  Almost every kid has a dinosaur phase, and some (us, for instance) carry that interest and hobby into adulthood.  Corrie bought this for herself as a treat one day, after finishing exams.  This dictionary has duration and appeals to a huge audience and wide variety of ages.  It will be sticking around on our shelves for years to come!
