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.
