Tales of the Prehistoric World

Adventures from the Land of the Dinosaurs

Travel back to the land before time to discover real dinosaur stories from the world of paleontology – featuring T. rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops.

Enjoy thrilling tales of intrepid paleontologists discovering jaw-dropping fossils in the first book by Kallie Moore – fossil expert and host of PBS Eons on YouTube. Come face-to-face with incredible prehistoric beasts including the dinosaurs that fossilized into gemstones, the shark with a saw in its mouth, and the pterosaur the size of an airplane!

As well as stories from the Jurassic, beautifully brought to life by illustrator Becky Thorns, the book also whizzes back in time even further to meet the first walking fish, before speeding forwards to hang out with mammoths and saber-toothed cats. Along the way you’ll discover if you have what it takes to be a paleontologist!
