Dinosaurs are amazing! Everyone knows that! But did you know that not all dinosaurs were green and scaly, some were ginger and feathered, or that they didn’t all roar, they cooed like pigeons, or that the ultimate prehistoric predator is actually not a dinosaur?…


What are these books actually about?

TV scientist, Dr Ben Garrod, has all the dinosaur answers to the questions you didn’t even have in his new series of books So You Think You Know About… Dinosaurs?

Dr Garrod mixes science with laughs to prove that science really is for everyone!

By looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, he reveals new-look prehistoric creatures.
