By Christopher Lloyd
Illustrated by Andy Forshaw

Discover the history of the dinosaur, in each major era, emphasising how dinosaur bodies and diets adapted over time. Learn about the best places to find fossils, who are the great dinosaur explorers and scientists and ultimately, what killed off the dinosaurs. A quiz, name game and glossary lead you to the book’s biggest feature – a fold-out timeline featuring 100 of the most incredible dinosaurs that ever lived – from their first appearance 230 million years ago, to their current living descendants. Full of facts and bursting with illustrations, Explorer: DINOSAURS! is a unique book for any dinosaur buff.

About the author

Nick Forshaw is an author and editor based in Berlin. He has written a history of the evolution of the dinosaurs, explored the way insects, arachnids and other creepy crawlies first developed, taken a close look at the way plants thrive on our green planet and investigated all the different species of mammal that have evolved on planet Earth. Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn’t know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers’ eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, UK, with his wife and two adorable terriers.
