I recall having this book as a kid. As a big dinosaur fan I read it over and over not that there is all that much to read. What their is some great illustrations. This book first came out 1960. This particular book is from 1966 as some guy named Grandpa signed and dated it 1966. To Kim from Grandpa 1966.
It was written by Jane Werner Watson and Illustrated by Rudolph E. Zallinger. Sadly the writing and illustrations are out of date. Dinosaurs were warm blooded and did not need to sit in water to support their weight. Also the necks and tails were not flexible for the large dinosaurs like Brontosaurus (not that other inferior name). That and the bipedal dinosaurs moved horizontal to the ground and did not drag their tails.
On the cover a brachiosaurus watches an Allosaurus. The small flying reptile has a very hard name to spell. Photo 2 features a Stegosaurus on the left and an Ankylosaur. Photo 3 has a triceratops facing off with T Rex. Wrapping it up is Brontosaurs being chomped on by Allosaurus. An adult brontosaurus would be twice that size and probably would not worry much about an Allosaurus.
