Did you know:
A shark as long as a bus roamed the oceans?
Hamsters with horns once burrowed the Earth?
Giant armadillos grew to the size of a family car?
Oh yes, this very much satisfies my love of engaging information books for children! Explore the world of ancient giant beasts as you’ve never done before with each one compared with its modern counterpart.
Have you ever heard of the Titanic Snake? No? I’m sure you do know the green anaconda though. What about the Therizinosaurus, which once roamed the Mongolian plains with its claws that were almost a metre long? Compare this with the cassowary, which has some of the longest claws in the modern animal world.
Full of fascinating facts, startling statistics and intriguing illustrations this will be a treasure trove for boys and girls aged from around eight years up – especially those lovers of ferocious beasts!
Highly recommended for primary readers with a passion for the weird and wonderful.
