Good science book, the author admirably tries to keep away from saying things about dinosaurs that we don't know about for sure. Unfortunately, that is practically nothing, so he shows a picture of the 11 dinosaurs, tells how big each of their teeth are, and says whether they eat meat or not, but not much else. "...Dinosaurs lived everywhere for a long time. Then they died. No one knows why."
