A First Book of Dinosaurs
A beautifully produced, large-format gift hardback of poetry all about dinosaurs.
The book is divided into four sections: 'Meet the Dinosaurs', 'Eat or Be Eaten', 'Dinosaur Families' and 'The End. Or Is It?', and closes with a dino-timeline. Meet familiar favourites including Pterosaurs and Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as some lesser-known creatures such as Eoraptor and Giraffatitan.
Poetic forms and techniques explored include kennings, similes, metaphors, acrostic poems, comparisons and onomatopoeia, plus a short dialogue with a modern-day chicken, and a recipe to create a Therizinosaurus.
With blocky, boldly dynamic artwork by Matt Hunt, this is a book to treasure.
