– Fresh new look with updated photography, fun diagrams, and new “eyewitness” features
– Updated information by expert consultants in the field

DK Eyewitness Dinosaur looks closely at different types of dinosaurs and their body parts, diets, senses, evolution, and more. Did you know that a herd of Ornithomimids could sprint from danger at a speed of up to 64 km/h (40mph)? Or that the long-necked Diplodocus was one of the largest dinosaurs to have ever walked on Earth, measuring up to 33m (108 ft).

Packed with incredible statistics and facts about dinosaurs written in easy-to-grasp text, this children’s book will help cultivate the palaeontologists of tomorrow. Colourful, factual illustrations and fascinating first-hand accounts from experts offer a unique view of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

With a groundbreaking visual approach and clear, child-friendly text, DK Eyewitness books have been a trusted favourite for parents, teachers, and school-age children since 1985. Now with an exciting makeover, this popular series has been reinvigorated for the next generation of information-seekers and stay-at-home explorers!
