Renowned muralist and illustrator Harry Robins captures the world of dinosaurs with vivid, four-color artwork and charming verses structured around the 26 letters of the alphabet. Each of the quatrains (one for each letter of the alphabet) accompanies a detailed illustration portraying a different dinosaur, and starts with an ornamental capital letter incorporating another depiction of the creature.

Robins works from the latest scientific information about the dinosaurs shown, and an engaging "Notes" section provides background on each of the verses.
