When I started writing about dinosaurs there was a big argument going on among scientists about whether birds were really the same as dinosaurs. I thought it was a great idea that you could look out of your window and see real, live dinosaurs walking around, so I used that as a starting point for the story.
Scientists are always finding out new things about dinosaurs, so books about them very quickly become slightly out of date. Luckily, you can find out all the latest information by looking on the internet. The first link is to the dinosaur pages of London’s Natural History Museum… http://internt.nhm.ac.uk/jdsml/nature-online/dino-directory//
…and this link is to the American Museum of Natural History which has a great section on palaeontology in its ‘Ology’ section.
You can impress your teachers, parents and friends by learning lots of long words!
