Synopsis

William Wise and Lynn Munsinger love dinosaurs just as much as kids do. In Dinosaurs Forever, this gloriously talented author and artist have created a superbly silly but well-informed collection of twenty-two original poems featuring dozens of dinos and their not-so-lost world.

Kids will learn such things as what (and whom) dinos ate, how they did (and didn't) get along with their fellow reptiles, and what they might have looked like while partying hearty at a fancy-dress ball. And with every turn of the page, young readers will experience the wondrous fascination these captivating creatures inspire...now and forever.
