About This Book
Renowned paleontologist Dr. Robert T. Bakker and paleoartist Luis V. Rey combine forces in this hardcover omnibus of three impeccibly accurate, dino-centric Picturebacks, available for the first time in 3-D! The dynamic dinos in Dinosaurs!, Prehistoric Monsters!, and Dino Babies! have always looked like they could jump off the printed page--and now they literally can! Watch as a spiked Stegosaurus tail whips off the page and scores a direct hit into an allosaurus (ouch!), or a pack of raptors leap onto the back of an unsuspecting tenontosaurus (uh-oh), or a squealing baby titanosaur hatches from an egg and is greeted by its giant mother (awww . . . ). Complete with a sturdy pair of 3-D glasses that fold into a reusable storage case, Dinosaurs: In Your Face! makes a perfect gift for kids who like their science to come with a little action!

  • Prehistoric Monsters!

    Prehistoric Monsters!
    A super-simple introduction to prehistoric animals, from the first weird and wonderful life forms on Earth to the earliest Ice Age humans–and much, much more.

    Dactyls! Dragons of the Air

    Dactyls! Dragons of the Air
    Dactyls. Flying Dragons. Pterodactylus. Whatever you call them, they are simply wonderful! Renowned paleontologist Dr. Robert T. Bakker explains how scientists observe fossils and living animals to determine how dactyls flew, walked, climbed, fed, and thought. Also included for the first time ever is his latest, still-unnamed discovery–an unusual dactyl with sharp-edged, backwards curved teeth, nicknamed "Snaggle Tooth." From the Hardcover Library Binding edition.

    Dino Babies!

    Dino Babies!
    Were Dinosaurs good parents? Were newly hatched dinos left to fend for themselves, like baby turtles? Or were they protected until they were fully grown, like baby eagles? Citing specific examples from the fossil record and making comparisons with living animals, renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker explains to young readers how we know that allosaurus babies didn’t have to hunt for themselves; how giant titanosaurs nested in crowded rookeries (and must have walked very carefully!); how Psittacosaurus was a dinosaur babysitter—and numerous other fossil finds, all of which indicate that yes, dinosaurs were good parents. A world-class pairing of dinosaur science and illustration for just $3.99!

    The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs

    The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs
    Renowned paleontologist Robert T. Bakker and award-winning paleoartist Luis V. Rey combine forces in this oversized picture book about the evolution of dinosaurs. From the conquest of land by dino ancestor Acanthostega during the Devonian Period, through the mass die-off of dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period, Bakker and Rey take readers on a safari through time while paying subtle homage to the 1960 Giant Golden Book Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Reptiles that inspired them both as young dinophiles. With stops along the way to look at monster bugs, ferocious fin-backs, fluffy dinosaurs, sea monsters and the 12-year-old girl who discovered them, dinosaur orchestras, tickling tyrannosaurs, and much, much more, this is a journey readers will never forget. It's a perfect gift for young dinosaur lovers—as well as adult fans of Dr. Bakker and Luis Rey!
