Award-winning author-illustrator Drew Sheneman brings budding paleontologists the truth about dinosaurs in this informative and hilarious nonfiction picture book that will teach kids everything they didn’t know (and never thought to ask) about their favorite subject—Dinosaurs!

A long, long time ago, planet Earth was full of dinosaurs. Giant dinosaurs that ate plants, meat-eating dinosaurs that walked on two feet, dinosaurs with armored frills—all KINDS of dinosaurs.

Until an asteroid appeared in the sky. A big one. A hot one. A moving-very-fast one. When it hit, most of the plants and animals on Earth went extinct. It was the end of the dinosaurs . . .

. . . Or was it?

Actually, the latest research shows that the dinosaurs didn’t all go extinct. They’re still around us now. In fact, you’ve probably seen dinosaurs at the park, eaten dinosaurs for dinner, and maybe even cleaned dinosaur poop off your family’s car.

Who are these dinosaurs living all around us? Find out in this informative, hilarious, and 100 percent factual nonfiction picture book by award-winning author, illustrator, and beloved syndicated cartoonist Drew Sheneman.

Dinosaurs Are Not Extinct by Drew Sheneman is a short, illustrated nonfiction book introducing children to one of the more common theories of dinosaur evolution. Working on the theory that theropods - the meat-eating dinosaurs - became what we know today as birds, Sheneman briefly walks the reader through the different types of dinosaurs and how they became extinct. He then discusses how not all animals died when the asteroid hit, leading to the evolution of theropods into the birds we know today. Children of all ages will be drawn to the book's colorful illustrations and humorous dinosaurs. Dinosaurs Are Not Extinct is the perfect gift for your dinosaur loving kids.
