We are going to visit a swampland where dinosaurs of all kinds live. So get ready for a wonderful adventure.

First of all let me introduce you to Tyrannosaurus Rex. This large meat-eating dinosaur will be ""very pleased to meet you,"" but beware, because his main interest probably is ""to EAT YOU!""

Next we are going to soar up into the skies where the Pteranodons fly. These large flying creatures have large crests on their head that help them glide. Take a look too at the dinosaur that is swimming in the ocean beneath them.

This charming pop-up book is sure to delight young dinosaur lovers. Most of the double page spreads look at one particular kind of dinosaur. On each one, young readers get to read a bouncy and often funny poem, pull the tabs, admire the pop-ups, and look at the illustrations. They might notice that one little pink dinosaur has a habit of turning up on all the pages.
