What Did Dinosaurs Eat?

Elizabeth MacLeod
Gordon Sauve

Dinosaurs roamed Earth millions of years ago, but they still fascinate kids today. The mysterious lives of these “terrible lizards” often elicit a volley of questions. Were all dinosaurs fierce? How fast could they run? Did dinosaurs fly? Were they meat-eaters, plant-eaters --- or both?

In What Did Dinosaurs Eat?, the simple question-and-answer format and realistic illustrations answer some of the most common queries kids have about dinosaurs. This book also incorporates a glossary of dinosaur names and how to pronounce them, as well as a listing of dinosaur-related Web sites.

Awards & Reviews

“Overall, this is a well-designed, visually entertaining introduction to dinosaurs for the preschooler.”
— Quill & Quire, September 2001
“Well designed to get the attention of younger dinophiles, this combines simple answers to simple questions with big, finely detailed portraits of 17 toothy, tough-looking examples,... the vivid writing - “Tyrannosaurus was one of the biggest meat-eating dinosaurs. Its teeth were as long as bananas! Tyrannosaurus was always hungry. It would even eat smelly dead dinosaurs” - is as riveting as Sauve's art.”
— Kirkus Reviews, September 2001
“Teeth, spikes, claws, horns and whiplike tails stalk across the pages in a steady parade sure to entice young dinophiles (one pterosaur is included). A closing page lists the names, pronunciations, and meanings of the reptiles depicted.”
— School Library Journal, November 2001
“A simple question-and-answer text and realistic illustrations address some of the most common queries kids have about dinosaurs, incorporating a glossary of dinosaur names with pronunciations and a listing of dinosaur-related web sites.”
