About this book

All the dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago, right? Wrong. Exciting new fossil research suggests that though most of the dinosaurs did die out, flying dinosaurs didn't. They survived and changed over all those millions of years. Now we call them birds.

"The feathered and nearly feathered dinosaurs are among the most exciting animals to be discovered in the fossil record in decades. In this book Christopher Sloan gives you a first look at them and tells you why they provide even more evidence that birds evolved from dinosaurs."
- Kevin Padian, Univ of California, Berkeley
