From the ancient Chinese belief that dinosaur bones belonged to dragons, to scientific arguments over whether dinosaur skins were leathery or scaly... Humans have had many theories about these fascinating creatures over the years. Kathleen Kudlinski leads readers on a journey through some of these ideas - from the sensible to the downright wacky - and introduces the idea that history is not set in stone.

Review:

This is an excellent informative read. You might even find yourself borrowing it! --www.supernanny.co.uk

For many children there's nothing to beat a good story, and plenty of adults cherish into adulthood the pleasure of the tales they loved as kids. Other young readers though thirst for facts, not fantasy. Boy Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs is for them. It explains how new discoveries have overturned long-held theories about dinosaurs and freely acknowledges that today's theories may well be regarded as ludicrous by future generations. That's a proposition some readers will find far more intriguing than any work of fiction. --Time Out

This book stands out because it helps young readers to learn about both dinosaurs and the dynamic nature of knowledge. This book poses questions that will interest children, invite them to think in a more than superficial way and encourage them to find out more. --Books for Keeps
