Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric Types

Alphasaurs and Other Prehistoric types
By Sharon Werner and Sarah Foss
Blue Apple Books, 2012. Unpaged. Nonfiction.

The 26 dinosaurs featured in this book (Allosaurus to Zunicera) run the gamut from scary and scaly to fast and ferocious. Each dino is created from letters (the letter their name begins with) of varying font and size. There are also descriptions of their physical characteristics, where/when they lived, and what they ate. Our friend the Utahraptor is featured, made up of hundreds of letter Us and described as having ultra-sharp claws in the shape of a ukelele. With its meticulous styling and innovative design, Alphasaurs is a must-read.
