Gr 4–7—This engaging dinosaur series pairs predator and prey together to draw readers. After a brief introduction to dinosaurs and the featured environment, each book presents five prehistoric duos that lived in the same time and place. A lively opening spread shows one threatening, attacking, or eating the other, with a text box describing the scene. The next spread presents side-by-side profiles of both beasts, which include a captioned illustration, a fact file, a scale drawing to show relative size, and a "killer fact" box. The dramatically illustrated battle scenes convey the action and excitement of the moment without sensationalizing, while also depicting varied looks at the featured environment. Two final spreads provide further facts on a variety of dinosaur topics; some, but not all are about some of the dinosaurs mentioned previously. VERDICT Fresh, creative additions to the dinosaur shelves.
