They may be prehistoric but they never get old…(a giveaway)

early cretaceous

What it would be like to see a living, breathing dinosaur? The Early Cretaceous brings readers close to prehistoric life. By combining the latest paleontological findings with highly detailed, intimate drawings of wildlife from the Early Cretaceous, readers  look into the eyes of some of the most fascinating creatures to ever inhabit the earth. Written and illustrated in the style of a naturalist’s notebook, it’s  a first-hand account of what it is like to stand alongside everything from the first birds to flying dinosaurs to some of the largest creatures ever to walk the earth. Discover how some dinosaurs survived polar blizzards, while others were able to pump blood five stories high to reach their brains.

The Early Cretaceous is backed by the research of one of paleontology’s most acclaimed theorists, giving the book the most up to date scientific interpretation regarding animal behaviors, interactions, and recreations.

“The illustrations and artistic layout are exceptionally beautiful. This is a book children will cherish, keep, and remember, and adults will be delighted to add to their collection.” – Sylvia Czerkas, Author and Director The Dinosaur Museum, Utah

Illustrator and co-author Juan Carlos Alonso says, “I have always had a passion for nature. It has taken me around the world from Australia to the Galapagos Islands where I have been able to experience wildlife first hand.”
