About this book

We live in a golden age of palaeontological discovery – the perfect time to dig into the spectacular world of dinosaurs. We know more about dinosaurs than ever before (for starters, they were more feathered and furry than we'd thought), plus we're constantly discovering new species – on average, a new dinosaur is uncovered once a week. Dinosaurs – The Grand Tour has always included everything worth knowing about more than 300 dinosaurs from A to Z; in this newly revised, expanded, and updated 2nd edition, you'll find all the latest science and species you need to know about now, including:

- Patagotitan mayorum – an Argentine titanosaur and the new title holder of "biggest dinosaur ever known"
- Nanuqsaurus hoglundi – an Alaskan species whose name means "polar bear lizard"
- New evidence that, contrary to what you saw on Jurassic Park, T. rex couldn't run!

The important discoveries and gory details touch on topics from geology, anatomy, evolution, and astronomy to Native American and Chinese myth. Illustrations on virtually every page, true to the latest findings, bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, furry, feathered glory.

Biography

As a small boy in the early 1980s nothing seemed more exciting to Keiron Pim than a visit to the Natural History Museum, where he would gaze up at the Diplodocus skeleton and later depart clutching some little dinosaur-related memento: an eraser shaped like Stegosaurus, a lurid poster of a Jurassic scene, or a book crammed with dino-facts. It would have blown his four-year-old mind to know that thirty years later a book on dinosaurs would be his first publication. Keiron, married with three young daughters, is a writer and journalist based in Norfolk, England.
