How Dinosaurs Really Work!

Illustrated by: Alan Snow
For Ages: 4 - 8
Get to know the truth about dinosaurs—inside and out—in this zany, irreverent take on the popular prehistoric critters, from the New York Times Best Illustrated creator of How Dogs Really Work.

Studying dinosaurs is dangerous work. After all, their sharp teeth and monstrously large appetites would make easy work of anyone within jaw’s reach.

But our fearless investigator remains undaunted. Alan Snow, known for his previous explorations into the lives of both Santa Claus and dogs, has turned his clever attention to these ancient reptiles. And thanks to his inside look at what makes dinosaurs tick, you’ll get the answers to all your prehistoric questions: What color were the dinosaurs? Where did they all go? And just how sharp were their teeth?
