Author(s): Ben Garrod
Ben Garrod's So You Think You Know About Dinosaurs? is fun, funny and informative. This highly collectible, pocket size series is the most up-to-date in 66 million years, featuring Tyrannosaurus Rex, Diplodocus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and Spinosaurus. Did you know that not all dinosaurs are green and scaly, some are ginger and feathered, or that they didn't all roar, they cooed like pigeons, or that the ultimate prehistoric predator is actually not a dinosaur? TV scientist, Dr Ben Garrod, is proud to be a geek as he mixes hard science and humour to prove that science is for everyone. All children know their dinosaurs but Ben encourages them to think differently, revealing how new discoveries and breakthroughs occur in science every day. By looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, Ben reveals new-look dinosaurs.

'There is lots of dino non-fiction around, but TV scientist and biologist Garrod shines a fresh, contemporary light on this ever-popular topic' The Bookseller.
