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
