Written by Steve Brusatte, a rising star in the world of paleontology and author of the New York Times-bestselling book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs, this new middle-grade nonfiction book will fascinate readers as they learn about the history of these remarkable animals, what caused them to evolve and go extinct, and the science we use to make new discoveries about them every day.

Think you know about dinosaurs? Think again.

Even though the dinosaurs roamed the earth millions of years ago, we’re still piecing together new information about these ancient animals. Did you know that, on average, a new species of dinosaur is discovered every single week? Or that many dinosaurs had feathers? Or that there are even modern-day dinosaurs walking around right now?

In this must-read book, New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed paleontologist Steve Brusatte writes about all the new discoveries he and his colleagues have made that help us better understand—and marvel at—these remarkable reptiles.
