Dinosaurs of Africa

Chinsamy-Turan, Anusuya


African dinosaurs are no less signi¬ficant than their ‘celebrity’ cousins, such as T. rex, and they are just as magni¬ficent and fascinating. Their fossils have been discovered across the continent – from the Sahara Desert to the Karoo. Dinosaurs of Africa starts with a brief general introduction, which is followed by short chapters on different dinosaur species, including fish-eating, sociable and predatory dinosaurs, as well as those that were cannibals. It also introduces the biggest meat-eating dinosaur of all time. Details are given about where these creatures were found, the meaning of their scienti¬fic names, and their size and diet. Spectacular, colourful illustrations bring the dinosaurs vividly to life; photographs, maps and line drawings further illustrate the subject, while ‘Facts’, ‘Unsolved’ and ‘Up close’ boxes add to the intrigue. This new edition of the much-loved Famous Dinosaurs of Africa published in 2014 revitalises our idea of what these incredible animals may have been like, with: newly discovered species; the latest scienti¬fic information; updated terminology; vibrant new illustrations. Dinosaurs of Africa is written for children, but has appeal for anyone interested in dinosaurs. Sales points: The only kids’ guide to African dinosaurs. Reflects the latest scientific finds. Lively design with illustrations by famous artist. Instructions for five simple projects.
