About this book

Get ready to meet the Titanosaur -- the biggest, heaviest creature to ever walk the Earth!

This book tells the story of the discovery of this new dinosaur from the mouths of the paleontologists who led the dig! From its discovery by a local herder, to the organization and completion of the excavation, this riveting story will have readers on the edge of their seats, and the beautifully painted illustrations will mesmerize. The final spread will open up into a gatefold showing a photograph of the full Titanosaur skeleton on display at the museum. Chock-full of back matter like a glossary and extra information and photographs from the dig, and an inside jacket poster of the Titanosaur, kids of all ages will devour this book.

Reviews

* "This book does an exceptional job of conveying the enthusiasm of the paleontologists (largely through recreated dialogue), scientific information relayed in illustrated sidebars, and the sheer size of the dinosaur. A concluding author's note seeks to inspire a new generation of paleontologists, and after reading this book there will doubtless be many lining up for the job." --Booklist, starred review

* "Everyone who reads this case study in paleontology's methods and awesome rewards will want to grow up to be a dinosaur scientist." --Kirkus, starred review

"With highlighted sections explaning vocabulary, special topics, and research methods, the book contains a lively mix of data, from details about sauropods to the day-to-day work of scientists. Gigena's beautiful, full-spread illustrations of the Patagonia terrain and the titanosaur are mesmerizing to look at." --School Library Journal
