Travel back in time to lock horns with a triceratops, stalk prey with a T-Rex, and learn to fly with a baby Pteranodon. With hundreds of things to spot and facts to learn, this is the biggest Atlas adventure yet!

Take a trip back to the age of the dinosaurs, with colourful, dramatic scenes from each era and maps showing fossil finds.

Travel the world's continents on a prehistoric adventure through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to meet the dinosaurs of the day, doing what they do best - grazing, hunting and eating ... often each other!

With map spreads showing the shifting continents through the eras, as well as fun facts, charming full-colour illustrations and dig site maps, this book is a feast for the senses!

'A perfect gift for dinosaur-mad kids, or as a brilliant introduction for a new fan of all things scaly and scary, a clear and interesting read that could be dipped into or read from start to finish.' * BookTrust * 'We love everything about this book, from the quirky details worked into various illustrations to the effective use of big format double page spreads to really immerse little ones' * Read It Daddy * 'An oversized feat of richly illustrated information' * Achuka * 'The colorful creatures that stalk through the oversize pages...evoke a stunning variety of life forms...absorbing' * Wall Street Journal * 'Where do I even begin on how brilliant this book is? I adore the Atlas of series and this Dinosaur version is superb... rich illustrations...truly engaging' * Let Them Be Small * "The colorful creatures that stalk through the oversize pages of 'Atlas of Dinosaur Adventures' have a simpler, more stylized look, but they too evoke a stunning variety of life forms. Written by Emily Hawkins and illustrated by Lucy Letherland, this absorbing compendium puts prehistoric animals on the map. It's our map, not theirs: The continents appear as they are today rather than in the landmass configurations that prevailed in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, making it easier to grasp the dinosaurs' extraordinary geographic span. Informative bursts of text and witty fillips here and there (e.g., a tiny Microraptor wears a goofy propeller hat) add fun to this engrossing volume for enthusiasts ages 4-10." - Wall Street Journal
