Explorer Dinosaurs! contains unique and exciting features including an 8-page pull-out timeline filled with fascinating facts about these extraordinary creatures that lived on our earth 230 million years ago, plus a 32-page illustrated explorer journal and dinosaur brain-teasers.
Calling All Agents:
Agent Eric Eagle is looking to recruit special agents for his next mission! Readers are invited to join the Eagle-Eyed Explorer Club, in which they embark on various adventures that will take them back in time. Agent Eagle has set special missions and challenges for the club’s agents to complete.
The first 100 successful agents to complete their mission will be presented with a fascinating Coprolite Fossil (petrified dinosaur poo!) to start off their collection of prehistoric artefacts. Plus, every successful agent will receive an Eagle-Eyed Dinosaur Certificate of Merit.
To win this amazing prize, curious kids must crack Agent Eagle’s secret code by matching the number of each chapter in the book with a series of shapes that appear on the Eagle-Eyed Explorer Club website.

Our 2 pence:
I am a lover of all things History and archaeology, facts and findings, but when it comes to Dinosaurs I am more excited than my son.
This book is filled with facts and well explained details for all ages to learn.
From Dinosaur identification pages to history of how they were discovered and by whom, you have a nice book not only for fun facts but also to learn in school projects.
The 1.8m Timeline – translated in imperial is 5 feet 10 inc – is fully described with wonderful design on the evolution and extinction of dinosaurs.
This book would be sooo suitable for a little younger me and when RJ starts to read on his own he will love to read it, meanwhile he is just pointing and asking what the dinosaurs are and we can continue to play.
