Being big isn't everything. It’s sometimes very good to be small. Even for dinosaurs!

The perfect addition to any dino-loving prereaders' shelves.

World-class zoologist Darrin Lunde celebrates the power of the small. Small dinosaurs weren't just cute; their size had evolutionary benefits. And when that giant meteor hit, who do you think survived?

Sure, you've heard of Triceratops, but do you know Microceratus, one of the smallest horned dinos? Love T. rex? Allow us to introduce Compsognathus, a tiny meat-eater that hunted insects. 

Little (and big) kids alike will appreciate the SIZE-mic fun to be had with this prehistoric introduction to dinos of all shapes and sizes.
