Few dinosaurs could run faster than a Tyrannosourus rex or escape its keen eyesight. What exactly did Tyrannosourus rex hunt? How did it stalk its prey? Read and find out all about one of the deadliest carnivores of the prehistoric world.

Lucia Washburn has illustrated more than a dozen books for children. Her Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science books include Dinosaur Tracks, Dinosaurs Big and Small, and Did Dinosaurs Have Feathers?, which has illustrations that "provide vivid visualizations of long-ago landscapes" (School Library Journal). Her other books include Look to the North by Jean Craighead George, a 1997 Parents' Choice Gold Award winner praised as "a fine addition to science collections" (ALA Booklist). When she travels, she and her family enjoy visiting the local museums to see their dinosaur collections. Being the mother of two children, she has a special fondness for Maiasaura. She lives in California with her family.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-4-T. rex would probably win any dinosaur popularity contest claws down, and this readable introduction to the species will only add members to its fan club. Realistic, highly colorful illustrations form a background for the informative text containing up-to-date information on this fearsome predator (and snippets on some of its kin). While not as dramatic in appearance as, say, William Lindsay's Tyrannosaurus (DK, 1993; o.p.) or as challenging as John Horner's authoritative Digging up Tyrannosaurus Rex (Crown, 1995), this title will be welcomed by younger dinophiles. Even if you own the above, or Elaine Landau's more comparable Tyrannosaurus Rex (Children's, 1999), you should still make room on your shelves for this attractive entrant to a solid series.
