Millions of years ago in the Cretaceous
period, herds of two and three-tonne Centrosaurs roamed the plains
in what is now Alberta and Montana. In fact, the Dinosaur
Provincial Park in Canada houses the greatest area of dinosaur bone
beds, thought to be the result of mass drowning of this horned
dinosaur. A fictional story with plenty of facts to thrill the dino
fan, A Moment in Time with
Centrosaurus is book three in Philip J.
Currie and Eva Koppelhus` series.
Featuring marvelous detailed paintings by Jan

From the Publisher
In this insightful, dramatically illustrated
new series, world-renowned palaeontologist Philip J. Currie, with
co-authors Eva Koppelhus and Eric P. Felber, employs the fossil
record to craft stories that encourage readers to explore a day in
the life of a creature from Earth's ancient past.
Fossil evidence springs to life on the page as
we follow the long-distance migration of Centrosaurs. Observe the
pack hunter Albertosaurus as it searches for migrating dinosaurs.
Follow the struggle of Sinosauropteryx to survive a volcano
eruption. Follow Troodon's fight to nurture her young and teach
them survival skills.
The conclusion of each book presents the
fossil evidence from which each story has been developed.
The authors' imaginative but scientifically
accurate approach to storytelling is perfectly complemented by
17-23 full-color illustrations from award-winning science
illustrator Jan Sovak.
