"Gualicho takes a bite out of the ornithopod’s back as it runs away from her, causing it to stumble and fall. She jumps on top of the body and rips open its neck with her teeth. The ornithopod becomes still and limp.

This was a lovely book blending both a fictional story about dinosaurs while using facts about them to teach the subject.

I'd love to see more of these stories in smaller editions which would maybe make them more appealing to not just adults but to a younger audience.
