Description


Packed full of dinosaur discoveries, battles, adventures, fascinating facts, quizzes and a helpful glossary along with cartoon illustrations and paleo art, these nonfiction titles read like novels and are just as engrossing.

Cool facts you might not know about dinosaurs...
Not all dinosaurs are dead. Chickens are dinosaurs.
Not all dinosaurs roar. Some dinosaurs cooed like pigeons or honked like geese.
Monkey puzzle trees developed their spiny leaves to avoid becoming dino brunch and still have them 66 million years later.
Dinosaurs had short arms.
Many dinosaurs had brightly colored feathers.
You might be able to outrun a T. rex. (Well, Usain Bolt probably could.)

Discover dinosaurs, new science, how to find a fossil and ask an expert, with Dr. Ben Garrod.

Praise For…


"Scientist Ben Garrod reminds readers that we can be a scientist at any age. His books may be pocket-sized, but they are filled with dinosaur discoveries, battles, adventures, fascinating facts, quizzes, cartoon illustrations and paleo art. And lots and lots of passion for dinos. Each book focuses on one kind of dinosaur: Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, and Triceratops."

Welcome to Doodleville, everyone!!! This beloved author, Chad Sell, brings us to his next fabulous graphic novel, Doodleville, which grabs the reader, heart and soul!! Doodleville brings us into a normal school, to a normal group of kids, in a normal art club.....except that these kids' doodles come alive!!! Drew loves her doodles dearly, but when one of her doodles goes rogue and hurts the other student's characters, she is wisked away on an adventure that teaches her so much: the complexities of friendship, the strength that lies in trusting yourself, and the power of working together with friends that can save the day!! Chad Sell's trademark combo of fun, vibrant artwork and deeply emotional and human storytelling makes you smile throughout, and reminds you that "being different can make you powerful." Sell's work is also a perfect example of representation as it should be: people of all types existing together, just like in real life. And while having a blast visiting Doodleville, you may even learn a bit of art history! No matter what, you'll surely be smiling till the very last page.
