With whimsy and ingenuity, cut-paper artist Chihiro Takeuchi’s second foray into “guess the animal” will delight dinosaur lovers of all ages—and fans of stylish concept books.

Whose bones? Tiny bones scattered across the spread are unidentifiable, but sharp eyes will spy footprints and food sources offered as clues. Now turn the page, and the bones have magically formed into a recognizable skeleton—Pteranodon or Stegosaurus, Velociraptor or Tyrannosaurus—while a stylized depiction of the animal completes the picture. In a final “fun facts” section, readers curious to know more will discover that the Ankylosaurus was covered in armor-like plates, an average-size Allosaurus weighed about as much as a car, and several more child-friendly tidbits.

This picture book is perfect for the dinosaur experts in your life. Before each dinosaur is introduced you are given a page of scattered bones and like a paleontologist, you look for clues to what skeleton it could be. Then when you turn the page you can find out the answer. There are some fun facts at the end about the featured dinosaurs. This would not be so great for a child new to learning about dinosaurs or for an older child that needs facts on dinosaurs. However, for a dinosaur enthusiast that already knows about dinosaurs and needs something unique to apply their knowledge, this is a fun challenge for them!
