The original title of the book: What's so Special about Triceratops?: Dinosaur facts and fun for children (What's so Special about Dinosaurs?)

Following the success and critical acclaim of the first four titles, this highly collectable series of bright, colourful books about dinosaurs continues. Children (and grown-ups!) can learn all the latest fascinating facts about dinosaurs in this brand new book series.

Triceratops (try-SAIR-uh-TOPS) has one of the largest skulls of any land animal that has ever lived. The largest was over 2.5 m long so Triceratops would need three doors side-by-side to walk through! Discover how fast Triceratops could move with the Speed - o - Meter, how terrifying it was on the Scary Scale, and which of today's animals it most resembles, in this fully illustrated book.

Like every book in this non-fiction series,What's so Special about Triceratops?is packed with fully palaeontologist-approved facts and stats that will give you all the dinosaur information that you could possibly want:

  • Setting the Scene explains how the age of the dinosaurs, the Mesozoic Era, was divided up and when Triceratops lived
  • The Hometown section discusses Triceratops fossils, where they were first discovered and by whom
  • Head straight to the Vital Statistics page to find out about Triceratops size and how it compares to objects and things from your life today
  • Dedicated pages where you'll learn all about the teeth, diet, speed, scariness and habitat of Triceratops
  • And munch, munch more!
On top of all of that (and for the cheats out there!), at the back of the book you'll find 'The Best Bits!' which pulls together all of the key knowledge you'll need to convince your friends, parents and teachers that you are a bone-a-fide dinosaur expert!

--Each one in the series takes an in-depth look at a specific dinosaur and my favourite is the Tyrannosaurus Rex --Natasha Harding, The Sun--They're excellent… I can recommend them. --Jeremy Condliffe, Congleton Chronicle--Children will love finding out a whole heap of fun facts… while parents can appreciate that all the information is backed by palaeontological research. --Helen Dorritt, Primary Times Magazine--They are really interesting and different factual dinosaur books featuring individual dinosaurs, written in language children understand… excellent dinosaur books for any fan, and excellent 'interesting facts' books for any information-obsessed primary school child. --thebrickcastle.com--This new series is supported by an educational website full of fun dinosaur games and factoids designed to help children and parents expand their dinosaur knowledge… regularly updated information, games and competitions will keep even the most enthusiastic young palaeontologist occupied! --Angels & Urchins--These are very entertaining and enjoyable books. The drawings give the dinosaurs a new kind of character… the T. rex almost seems to be smiling and just look at his feathers! --Happy Families Magazine, Easter 2016 br>--Totally Roar-some!Calling all budding palaeontologists! If you want to learn more about dinosaurs, then you need to get your claws on a new series of books: What's so Special about Dinosaurs? --Helen Dorritt, Primary Times Magazine--The text is in small, snappy chunks, and everything is so visual that despite all of the tricky words, it isn't actually intimidating, even for my new 6-year-old… I think they can be a great tool for reluctant readers, they certainly put us straight on quite a few myths and are fascinating for the adults as well as the children. --thebrickcastle.com --Various

    The format of these lovely, engaging books really came into its own on reading '...Triceratops'. My now nearly-six-year-old has become really comfortable with the format, meaning she wants me to join in very little with the reading of them, as she has become so familiar with the terms and where to look for the bits she really enjoys. She took herself to the scariness, and braininess scales and the speedometer and was very impressed with how fast and scary (when threatened) Triceratops was. She is also starting to compare the dinosaurs in terms of whether they are herbivores or carnivores. An eye-opener for me! Even my two-year-old is starting to take an interest, particularly in the life-like representations. I can see both kids growing with these books and we can't wait for more!

    This book is just the right balance for kids and adults. It really gives the kids extra understanding to the world of dinosaurs that they Know and love. However reading the book itself i surprised myself with the amount of detail it goes into about triceratops'. I feel for me the format and colours really make it great for children. I also found that a couple of the facts in the book i didn't even know myself.A really great and fun read!

    Great excitement when the postman delivered the next four books in this dinosaur series this morning. Triceratops is a family favourite and we thought we knew a lot about it, but were pleasantly surprised to learn lots of new facts. We now know that it had the largest skull of any land animal, EVER and that its horns change shape as it grew into an adult. Great books, thoroughly engaging for all the family. More please!

    This is such a brilliant, informative book for the whole family. It makes an interesting and exciting read for the children... as well as parents!I really enjoyed the host of fascinating facts about the huge (2.5m long) Triceratops. And, I found it very valuable for my children to learn a lot about these creatures that are no longer with us. In fact, the book goes into incredible amounts of detail, but, at the same time, keeps the layout easy to read. It also offers a great format for children to understand. My children particularly enjoyed the vibrant colours and great illustrations which enabled them to mentally picture what these creatures that used to roam our lands are like.The book goes into some pertinent facts about the habitat of Triceratops, the diet they eat, the speed they travel at, their size and a why it is that they were so feared. There is a very valuable best bits section that brings all the information together succinctly so you can put the book down knowing the key facts.I especially liked that all the information is backed up with full paleontological research, so you know your children are getting accurate facts that hopefully they can use in class one day!I'm looking forward to reading the next one...

    Just look at the illustration on the cover! It's so appealing and once you peek inside the book, it's so inviting and full of fun and interesting facts about these fascinating creatures. All kids are curious about dinosaurs and this book answers a lot more questions than I ever could. And yet it's an easy read and makes "learning" fun - they just don't realise they're learning anyway so these colourful books make great presents and will make all kids happy to have yet another book to read with mum or dad, who'll be learning a lot too. It's part of a new series, each book covers a specific type of dinosaurs and the facts are put in perspective so that we can try and imagine better how they looked and moved and behaved. Highly recommend!

    Another magical book from the “What’s so Special…” series!Yet again I’m really impressed with the colour and print quality of these books, they’re sturdy, vibrant and so fantastically laid. There are so many shapes, colours and illustrations to get the kids engaged.It’s also really good fun to use the Best Bits section in the back of the book like a game of ‘top trumps’ when you’ve got more than one of the series,These books are a continued winner in our household, even if the little ones aren’t massively into dinosaurs to start with, they will be after spending some time with the dinosaurs in these books!

    I love this series - and so do the children. Each book is beautiful to look at and full of fascinating facts that are pitched just right for the children to grasp them and translate them to their world. Also lots for adults to learn too - so i am happy to read these books with the children again and again (which they want me to do!) Worth the money as each book is very high quality and full colour.

    Another very engaging and well laid out 'Whats so special book', as informative and interactive as all others, great fun for both children and their parents.
