The Ultimate Dino-pedia by Don Lessem

Lessem Don “Dino” The Ultimate Dino-pedia, illustrated by Franco Tempesta.  265 p.  Lessem and Tempesta have created an irresistible and fairly wide-ranging look at the new science of dinosaurs.  The graphics are stunning and the book is worth looking at just for those.  But, while the information on each dinosaur may not be exhaustive, it is at least well-researched and informative.  Over 70 dinos have their own two-page spread and hundreds have little scientific fact blurbs.  I can’t wait to get this on my shelf.  I hope it is sturdy enough to handle the wear and tear it is sure to get!  EL, MS – ESSENTIAL.
