Travel back to the land before time to discover real dinosaur stories from the world of paleontology—featuring T. rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops.

Young children will enjoy thrilling tales of intrepid paleontologists discovering jaw-dropping fossils in the first book by Kallie Moore – fossil expert and host of PBS Eons on YouTube. Kids will come face-to-face with incredible prehistoric beasts including the dinosaurs that fossilized into gemstones, the shark with a saw in its mouth, and the pterosaur the size of an airplane!

As well as stories from the Jurassic era, beautifully brought to life by illustrator Becky Thorns, Tales of the Prehistoric World also whizzes back in time even further to meet the first walking fish, before speeding forwards to hang out with mammoths and saber-toothed cats.

Along the way young readers will discover what it takes to be a paleontologist!
