Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 3— This introduction to creatures "just as strange and wonderful as any dinosaur" pairs a straightforward text with action-packed, lifelike illustrations. The book's structure is similar to Brown's other "I Can Read!" titles, with a spread devoted to each of 11 prehistoric animals, including the Elasmosaurus, Hainosaurus , and Archaeopteryx . Helpful pronunciation guides are included. Readers of this book will get a close-up feel for life millions of years ago.—Sarah O'Holla, Village Community School, New York City [Page 130].

An exciting easy reader introduces youngsters to the prehistoric creatures who dominated the oceans and the sky, from the Kronosaurus to the flying Pterodaustros.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

Strange and wonderful creatures shared the earth with the dinosaurs. Kronosaurus ruled the seas with teeth as big as bananas and jaws more powerful than a Tyrannosaurus rex's. Flying Pterodaustro spit water through hundreds of long, thin teeth. Deinosuchus, the giant crocodile, preyed on unlucky dinosaurs. These and other amazing animals are introduced to young readers in easy-to-read text and dynamic illustrations.
