coverA Child's Book of Prehistoric Animals, 1956
By Bruno Frost


I remember borrowing this book from the Birchwood School (Rockaway Township, NJ) library.  Although the
book's cover says that it is by Bruno Frost, he is actually the illustrator.  The book's title page states that the text is
by none other than John H. Ostrom, and that the book has been reviewed by Edwin H. Colbert for technical
accuracy!  The artwork in this book is obviously based on the American Museum of Natural History's collection
of illustrations and artwork.

Take a look at the misshapen head of the Tyrannosaurus with the eyes located too close the snout.  It is
obviously based on the American Museum of Natural History Knight painting of the showdown between
T. Rex and Triceratops.   Does the Paleoscincus look familiar?  Check out the entry for Colbert's
"Dinosaurs: their Discovery and their World."
