I’m delighted to announce that my new book, Dining with Dinosaurs, A Tasty Guide to Mesozoic Munching hit the shelves of bookstores both real and virtual on September 20th.
Dining with Dinosaurs takes you on a tour of who ate whom (and what) in the Mesozoic. You will learn all about the ancient food web, from enormous long-neck herbivores to teensy blood-drinking fleas. Along the way, you’ll encounter Spinosaurus on the search for fish, raptors hunting in packs, plants telling you how they eat sunlight, and scientists sharing their knowledge in comic-book style interviews. Get ready to be amused, surprised, and maybe even a bit grossed out when you learn what was on the prehistoric menu.
The book is intended for ages 7 – 12, and anyone else who likes their science delivered with lots of pictures and a sense of humor.
“From T. rex and like “mega carnivores” down to bacterial “trashivores,” everyone is a guest—and also on the menu—at this paleo-pantry…Five-star fare for librovores.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The author set out to write a book about the ‘vores’ and she has succeeded admirably. From the midnight snack on the front cover to the selected sources at the back, this junior reader is packed full of scientific fact; all presented in a fun and exciting manner.” – Dinosaurnews.org
Where to buy: from any on line bookstore, or at your local bookstore.
