From the huge ponderous sauropods to the fast and deadly theropods, learn what the dinosaurs ate, how they defended themselves, how fast they grew, where they lived and nested, and the latest theories on how and why the dinosaurs died out. The Natural History Museum Book of Dinosaurs also reveals how human beings discovered that dinosaurs existed. Covering all the latest discoveries including exciting new research on feathered dinosaurs from China, this stunning book keeps the incredible age of the dinosaur alive.

For more than 160 million years, dinosaurs were the most successful and varied animals to dominate the Earth. The Natural History Museum Book of Dinosaurs is based on the world-famous fossil collections and the permanent “Dinosaurs” exhibition at the Museum. Written under the authority of one of the world’s leading departments of palaeontology and packed with outstanding models, paintings and full-colour illustrations showing the amazing variety of life that proliferated in the Mesozoic Era – the age of the dinosaurs – this book is a must for dinosaur fans and readers alike.
