The story of life on Earth through the planet' s major mass extinctions. Book four, Lisowicia , focuses on a massive nine tonne, elephant-sized animal. TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible to everyone, whether you' re 8 or 80! He presents a unique exploration of the most iconic animals ever to walk, swim, waddle or stalk our planet in this collectable, full-colour eight-book series, illustrated by paleo-artist Gabriel Ugueto. 201 million years ago, and unlike previous events, the End Triassic mass extinction left lots of clues as to what caused it. Among the victims was Lisowicia, a massive nine tonne, elephant-sized animal which, in many ways, was a cross between a reptile and a mammal, but not quite either! With an additional ' Ask the Expert' section, stunning full-colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book will reveal a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
' A truly gripping and awe-inspiring series of books . . . An awesome way in which to learn tons and have a great time doing it' * VIP Reading * PRAISE FOR BEN GARROD: ' This was a super book for us to read together . . . Any budding paleontologists would be poring all over this and relishing the amazing array of facts and illustrations . . . Well written with clear explanations of some tricky concepts - this is a book we can keep on the bookshelf for years' Toppsta reader review, parent, on Dunkleosteus. ' It is really good to read . . . The pictures were really helpful for imagining what life looked like when trilobites lived. I want to read the other books in the series now, especially the megalodon one' Toppsta reader review, age 11, on Trilobite. ' This book is brilliant. It was interesting and so many facts I didn' t know before . . . The illustrations are great. Will be looking at other books in this series' Toppsta reader review, age 8, on Dunkleosteus. ' The size and colour of this book made me want to open it straight away . . . This is a must-have series of books for any school library!' -- Angela Carr, teacher, LoveReading, on Dunkleosteus
