From the Time of the DinosaursBook - 2010
While the dinosaurs walked the earth, pterosaurs (flying reptiles), ancient birds and other monster fliers ruled the skies. John Bindon's illustrations, created with the help of the latest fossil research, bring nineteen of these long-vanished creatures to life with startling brilliance. Some of these monster fliers were as small as a crow, others as big as a small plane. 'Monster Fliers' brings together the latest research in clear, engaging text and dramatic illustrations, making it a great addition to a young child's dinosaur collection. The book includes a timeline to show when these creatures lived as well as a chart indicating their relative sizes. AGES: 5-9 AUTHOR: It's difficult to believe that Elizabeth MacLeod never took a writing course during her four years at the University of Toronto. Instead, she studied science, graduating with an honors degree in biology and botany. Her training has come in handy for researching and writing children's information books, including most recently Why Do Horses Have Manes?, What Did Dinosaurs Eat? and Monster Fliers. MacLeod was managing editor of OWL Magazine from 1986 until 1989. Soon after, Kids Can Press asked MacLeod if she would consider authoring a book on electronic communications for kids. The result was The Phone Book: Instant Communication from Smoke Signals to Satellites and Beyond. Since then, MacLeod has risen to the challenge of creating books to fascinate and involve kids including titles in the Kids Can Do It, Snapshots: Images of People and Places in History and Kids Books Of series.
