2009 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award Winner
The prehistoric forest is alive with noise! Herds of duck-billed dinosaurs are honking and braying at each other while smaller plant-eating dinosaurs are grunting and rustling in the bushes. Then all of a sudden--ROAR--it's the terrifying sound of a T. Rex! Now dino-loving kids can meet all of the incredible animals that once walked the face of the earth in this incredible new book from best-selling illustrator Maurice Pledger. Sounds of the Wild: Dinosaurs brings together dramatic, multilayered dinosaur sound effects with incredible pop-up panoramas to give children a sense of life 200 million years ago. They'll discover a panoply of prehistoric creatures from the Triassic and Jurassic periods through the Late Jurassic and Cretaceous eras. They'll dine with fearsome meat-eater Allosaurus, hear the eerie calls of the giant underwater Liopleurodon, and insist that you read the book again and again. With Pledger's stunning illustrations and a detailed guide to the dinosaurs of each period, kids will find this book entertaining as well as educational.
