Time Traveling Dinosaurs. How does a colossal Diplodocus longus make a 145-million-year journey from the prehistoric plains of Utah to today’s Smithsonian Museum? How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum is a real page-turner. As factual as it is engaging, acclaimed author and illustrator Jessie Hartland consulted curators at our National Museum of Natural History to ensure accuracy. Hardcover; 34 pages with full color illustrations on each. Ages 6 to adult. 9.1" x 12.2".
The cast skeletons of Jurassic titans—including the herbivore Triceratops and the carnivore Tyrannosaurus rex—face off in our National Museum of Natural History’s Dinosaur Hall. Though the lance-like horns and bony skull frill of the Triceratops would have made it difficult, the fearsome T. rex was happy to have him for lunch.
