While the dinosaurs walked the earth, pterosaurs (flying reptiles), ancient birds and other monster fliers ruled the skies. John Bindon's illustrations, created with the help of the latest fossil research, bring nineteen of these long-vanished creatures to life with startling brilliance. Some of these monster fliers were as small as a crow, others as big as a small plane. Monster Fliers brings together the latest research in clear, engaging text and dramatic illustrations, making it a great addition to a young child's dinosaur collection. The book includes a timeline to show when these creatures lived as well as a chart indicating their relative sizes.
