how and why wonderThe How and Why Wonder Book of Dinosaurs, 1960
By Darlene Geis

This was my second dinosaur book (after the Saalfield Science Series Dinosaur book).  Nice illustrations by Kenyon Shannon.

tyranno        brachio

I loved the illustration on the left when I was a child.  Note that one foot of T. rex has 4 toes, while the other has 5!
The illustration on the right shows a typical restoration of a submarine Brachiosaurus before the dinosaur renaissance of the late 1960's
put Brachiosaurus and other sauropods back on land where they belong.  See doubtboy for more on this book.
