              Travel back in time to find out about the fantastical wildlife that lived on Earth before we did. From the first living cells to fearsome dinosaurs and giant mammals, take a journey through prehistory to find out about the supersized, the scary, and the downright bizarre animals ...and plants that inhabited Earth in ancient times. Broken down by animal or plant type, there are profiles on more than 40 key species. With famous favourites such as mighty Tyrannosaurus and huge woolly mammoths, as well as lesser-known organisms, including five-eyed Opabinia and aeroplane-sized pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus, children won't fail to be captivated by the amazing range of beasts on display. Learn about the primeval world itself and how the Earth has changed over time, why fossils form, and the arrival of early humans. Detailed artworks bring the past to life, while pronunciation guides help with tricky names, and a visual index provides a quick overview of every species in the book. My Book of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life is an ideal first book about early plants and animals, and is sure to be a hit with fact-obsessed young fans of all things dinosaurs and other prehistoric life.

The latest exciting title in DK's popular illustrated atlas series maps out the habitats of the world's mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, and more. Whether ...it's plotting the range of a lion, following the flight paths of birds, tracking great white sharks in the oceans, or exploring the migration of the monarch butterfly you will see exactly where and how more than 100 extraordinary animal species live. What makes Animal Atlas unique is the maps themselves. Each one is individually commissioned in 3D, with detail to show the habitat of each animal, as well as its geographic location. This reveals an astonishing amount of information about the behaviour of these animals, from how seals are adapted to survive in freezing Antarctic seas to how beetles survive in the heat of the Sahara desert. There is also a focus on the conservation and protection of animals. Maps reveal the shrinking territories of some species, showing where they used to roam in the past compared to what's left of their range today. Whichever animal you're trying to track down, you're sure to find it in Animal Atlas.
