Welcome to the museum that is always open to explore...
Step inside the pages of this beautiful book to discover galleries of dinosaurs, expertly curated to bring you the experience of a fascinating exhibition from the comfort of your own home.
Dinosaurium features a wide range of dinosaurs from the most-loved Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex to lesser-known species such as Coelophysis and Tsintaosaurus. With stunning artwork from Chris Wormell (known for the cover of H is for Hawk and his picture books including George and the Dragon) and informative text with input from experts in palaeontology, Dinosaurium is the perfect gift for anyone with an interest in this fascinating field.
Welcome to the Museum is a series of beautifully illustrated, stunningly curated, informative books for all ages. From Animalium and Botanicum to Historium and Dinosaurium there is a book for everyone to discover and explore.
This addition to the Welcome to the Museum series offers a vivid tour of a paleontological exhibition. Beginning with a graphic representation of a dinosaur family tree, the tour leads readers through six "galleries" devoted to different geological periods and dominating dinosaurs of those eras. Wormell's dramatic digital engravings are reminiscent of vintage scientific plates; each is paired with a corresponding key identifying the image, while in sections of lively, clear prose, Murray offers greater detail about the subjects in the tableaus: "Pachycephalosaurus are thought to have used their helmetlike heads either for display or to fight one another, most likely over mates or territory," she writes. The muted color palette adds to the sense of visiting the dimly lit hallways of a natural history museum with curiosities to be found around every corner or, in this case, with the turn of the page. Ages 8 12.
