Strange and wonderful creatures shared the earth with the dinosaurs. Kronosaurus ruled the seas with teeth as big as bananas and jaws more powerful than a Tyrannosaurus rex's. Flying Pterodaustro spit water through hundreds of long, thin teeth. Deinosuchus, the giant crocodile, preyed on unlucky dinosaurs. These and other amazing animals are introduced to young readers in ...more

Without the first page of text, I would have rated this book higher. The book clearly declares an old earth, and thus, evolutionary theory. Otherwise the book remains neutral and presents interesting information to young, new readers.

Pteranodons are, in fact, not dinosaurs as Charlotte Lewis Brown explains, although they are monsters of the air. Each animal has two full pages of description and realistic pictures. This is not quite a chapter book - it has a table of contents with the page numbers. The back cover states that it is, “a high-interest story for developing readers” and this is exactly what it is. Boys will clamber to read, “Beyond the Dinosaurs.”

Positively reviewed in SLJ and Horn Book

Brown introduces children to the creatures who shared the air and the sea with the dinosaurs. Action filled illustrations and short descriptions show readers a glimpse of life during the Jurassic period.

Dynamic illustrations that children would be drawn to – particularly young boys. Although the feeding scenes may be slightly gruesome for more sensitive children.

It would be good for students in second grade because they are learning how to read well. It explains the characteristics of animals and where they live. It is a non-fiction book.
This book is a beginning reader that would be fun for someone that loves dinosaurs. It is very informative and at a little bit higher reading level.

I have always loved studying science and writing stories. I was thrilled to be able to combine these interests in my three non-fiction children’s books about prehistoric animals. When I am not writing or working as a vertebrate paleontologist, I keep busy teaching college-level classes on dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. I currently live in Western Washington.
