Booklist - 04/01/2019 In this infographic reader in the By the Numbers series (2 titles), Caldecott Honor Book author-illustrator Jenkins has created a visually satisfying, fact-packed, and scientifically up-to-date survey of a timeless topic. In a field guide–sized format, 15 spreads each hit on a different dinosaur-related topic, among them, skulls, claws, and specific species, such as the T. rex. Each creature or object is centrally depicted in Jenkins’ signature paper-collage artwork and surrounded by silhouettes and graphs that, packed with statistical information, provide a human-sized sense of scale. An explanation of the asteroid-induced mass extinction and a graph of surviving dinosaur relatives conclude an engaging overview for fans and neophytes alike. Back matter includes an index, glossary, pronunciation guide, and bibliography (helpful for deeper research). An accessible visual presentation that is fascinating and informative. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
