About This Book
What would happen if a Tyrannosaurus rex and a Velociraptor met each other? What if they had a fight? Who would win?
Don't answer too quickly; think about this:
• A T. rex walked on two legs and used its tail to balance.
• Raptors were about the same size as a third grader.
• Proportionally, a raptor had a larger brain than a T. rex.
In addition to fast facts and a battle prediction, this approachable work engages kids by posing ideas and theories to keep them thinking even after the reading ends.
In this innovative science series from favorite nonfiction author Jerry Pallotta, readers will learn about dangerous creatures by asking "Who would win?" Each book is illustrated with full-color pictures and features a pair of animals that rarely, if ever, meet in the wild. Young scientists will love using the book's easy-to-read facts and their own reasoning skills to decide for themselves which creature would be the winner.
