Elizabeth MacLeod has written many books for children, including Why Do Cats Have Whiskers? Ever since she first rode a horse at summer camp, Liz has been swept away by these wonderful animals. She immediately fell in love with their smell and the feel of their velvety noses. When Liz was a little girl, she wanted a Shetland pony - she still loves their shaggy coats!From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5?A sort of "Guinness Book of World Dinosaur Records," this volume compares dinosaurs by their most distinguishing features: the longest, the biggest meat eater, the slowest, etc. Some of these superlative attributes may be fleeting (not unlike the Guinness records!); the "last dinosaur" can only retain its title until a more recent fossil is discovered to displace it. And some of these characteristics are pretty subjective. Can humans really know which dino was the dumbest, the best parent, or the most popular? Still, the format works well for kids who want something to browse through, and the large, full-color illustrations have the right mix of action, realism, and scenery to hold their interest. A chart places all the creatures on a time line.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
