I Want to Read It (40): When Dinos Dawned, Mammals Got Munched, and Pterosaurs Took Flight



I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.




When Dinos Dawned, Mammals Got Munched, and Pterosaurs Took Flight: A Cartoon PreHistory of Life in the Triassic by Hannah Bonner, April 10, 2012. Published by National Geographic Children's Books. Source: Want to Read.
In the style of WHEN BUGS WERE BIG and WHEN FISH GOT FEET this book discusses all the exciting developments of the Triassic Age, from the recovery of the planet from the most deadly mass extinction ever, to the first appearance of the dinosaurs. We also get to meet the first mammals, the first pterosaurs (flying reptiles), the first frogs, a host of predatory marine reptiles, early turtles, and the first coral reefs.  With the books' signature blend of humor and clearly presented information, cartoon illustrations help keep the fact-filled material extra fun.

Why

Early this week, or Monday if you will, I had the opportunity to review Hannah Bonner's newest book Dining with Dinosaurs, which was purely delightful. So I decided to look up her other books and came across this one....and I must say I need it! Sure, it may be a picture book, but it has dinosaurs and I'm all for that!! 

While I may have only two reasons for be interested in reading this one, dinosaurs and that I enjoyed her other work, I just really want to see how this one plays out.

Are you, or someone you know, in to dinosaurs? Then I highly recommend checking out  Dining with Dinosaurs.
