    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 Sadly the writing and illustrations are out of date.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.

      I had some Golden Books, they were well written with the illustrations to keep you interested. I loved dinosaurs as a kid, still do. I didn't have this book though, thanks for sharing it.

      Thanks for the clarification fortapache...my wife calls me a dinosaur that drags my tail....now I can tell her that there is no such thing :)

      This has the same cover as the brooke bond dinosaur album from 1966.

      Thank you very much Phil. It does indeed. I think many dinosaur toys were modeled after this artwork.
