Enormous and fierce, these little-known predators from prehistoric times rival the mightiest of the dinosaurs!

Kids who are obsessed with animals, savage ones in particular, are going to love reading about these impressive ancient giants. Mega-Predators of the Past is an entertaining and informative look at some of the prehistoric creatures who have not—until now—had their day in the spotlight. Instead of featuring the usual suspects like T. rex, this book will introduce young readers to some of the lesser-known but equally oversized and ferocious predators from the distant past, such as the griffenfly, the giant ripper lizard, and the terror bird. Melissa Stewart, a Sibert honoree and the award-winning author of more than 180 science books for children, is passionate about sharing the wonders of nature and devoted to producing children’s nonfiction books that bring science to life. Enhanced by lively illustrations from Howard Gray, this book illustrates her vision perfectly: a friendly and approachable account of some of the most amazing creatures ever to inhabit the Earth.
