Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer TKono
"Monster Fliers" by Elizabeth MacLeod is an incredibly informative book. Nineteen amazing creatures from pre- historic times are highlighted. Each has a page or so and a small chunk of text. Name pronunciation, metabolic facts, descriptions, and overall miscellaneous facts are given. There are even questions every so often that are answered. Also included is a picture of each creature in its habitat performing some sort of action.
The pictures illustrated by John Bindon are marvelous. There is a pristine quality about them that makes them appear quite real. Besides the lively illustrations, the facts are presented in such a way as to not appear intimidating to young readers--small sections of information are given, instead of massive chunks of wording. As a non-fiction book, this will excite readers and, contrary to the title, even girls will enjoy this book. Additionally, this book is not overtly pro-evolution.
Some pictures show creatures eating other creatures
