Through detailed illustrations and descriptive narrative, readers will experience a thrilling, thoroughly enjoyable ride through the most popular time period of prehistory.

What would it be like to see a living, breathing dinosaur? Following in the footsteps ofAncient Earth Journal: The Early Cretaceous, this next installment,The Late Jurassic, will take readers further back in time to a period when giants ruled the land and early mammals began to secure their place alongside the dinosaurs. The Late Jurassic period was home to many species of our favorite dinosaurs, such as Apatosaurus (or Brontosaurus), Allosaurus, and Stegosaurus, to name a few.The Late Jurassicincludes the latest paleontological findings to build an accurate depiction of the dinosaurs, environment, and wildlife of the period. Due to the abundance of fossils available for both plants and animals of this period, the book paints a vivid, realistic picture of the flora and fauna of the time, with more emphasis on hunting and defensive tactics, as well as early mammals and their role in the planet's evolution, for a thrilling, thoroughly enjoyable ride through the most popular time period of prehistory. Written and illustrated in the style of a naturalist's notebook, the reader is given a first-hand account of what it would be like to stand alongside some of the largest creatures to ever walk the earth.

A NSTA-CBC  Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K-12 for 2017 - NSTA-CBC"The Late Jurassic was a time when dinosaurs were at their peak weirdness, and it looks like you've done a great job of covering their vast diversity. The detailed anatomical close-ups really help drive home the link between form and function. Kudos on another awesome contribution - Jordan Mallon, Ph.D., Research scientist, Paleobiology, Canadian Museum of Nature"Beautifully detailed and realistically colored line illustrations gave me a vivid feel for what the creatures of the Jurassic world looked like. Add an enlightening and educational narrative with each animal and I was drawn right into how life was so many millions of years ago. Both alien and yet naturalistic, Juan Carlos Alonso and Gregory Paul's prehistoric animals in "The Late Jurassic" are amazing - Mike Fredericks, Prehistoric Times magazine"Your new book on the Late Jurassic in the Ancient Journal series is a splendid follow up to your previous book on the Early Cretaceous. Both you and Gregory Paul are to be complimented and commended for the brilliant artistic and scientifically accurate presentation of the subject - Sylvia Czerkas, Author and Director, The Dinosaur Museum, Utah"The artwork is fantastic...really impressive work - Christopher N. Jass, Ph.D., Curator, Quaternary Paleontology, Royal Alberta Museum, Canada
