            Journey back to the Mesozoic Era, when fearsome dinosaurs roamed the land, menacing pterosaurs patrolled the skies, and the seas were filled with awesome reptiles. See every type of prehistoric animal in unprecedented detail and with stunning realism. Find out how these fascinati...ng creatures lived, why they died out, and what their fossil traces tell us. This fully revised edition of Knowledge Encyclopedia- Dinosaur! is loaded with more than 60 prehistoric creatures, from the age of dinosaurs to the Ice Age. Did you know that Velociraptor had three large "killer claws" on each foot to hunt down prey? Or that the long-necked Diplodocus was as long as three school buses? Can you imagine what a strange life it would be for Saltasaurus with no toes on their front feet? Would you believe that Carcharodon megalodon was an ocean monster with a fearsome bite at least six times stronger than today's great white shark? Packed with jaw-dropping 3D images including the Pterodactylus, ferocious Tyrannosaurus, the gigantic snake Titanoboa and mighty woolly mammoth, this fact-filled book is made for kids.

            Humans are the only mammals to walk on two, rather than four, legs. From an evolutionary perspective, this is an illogical development, as it slows us down. But here we are, suggesting there must have been something tremendous to gain from bipedalism.

            Jungle is a new and ambitious history of the world, telling the remarkable story of the world's tropical forests from the arrival of the first plants millions of years ago to the role of tropical forests in the evolution of the world's atmosphere, the dinosaurs, the first mammals... and even our own species and ancestors. Highlighting provocative new evidence garnered from cutting-edge research, Dr Roberts shows, for example, that our view of humans as 'savannah specialists' is wildly wrong, and that the 'Anthropocene' began not with the Industrial Revolution, but potentially as early as 6,000 years ago in the tropics. We see that the relationship between humankind and 'jungles' is deep-rooted, that we are all connected to their destruction, and that we must all act to save them. Urgent, clear-sighted and original, Jungle challenges the way we think about the world - and ourselves.
