Sibert medalist Catherine Thimmesh unravels the mystery of how we bring to life a creature that no one has ever seen before. Strikingly illustrated with full-color images of some of the most beautiful and accurate dinosaur art available.

No human being has ever seen a triceratops or velociraptor or even the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex. They left behind only their impressive bones. So how can scientists know what color dinosaurs were? Or if their flesh was scaly or feathered? Could that fierce T.rex have been born with spots?

In a first for young readers, the Sibert medalist Catherine Thimmesh introduces the incredible talents of the paleoartist, whose work reanimates gone-but-never-forgotten dinosaurs in giant full-color paintings that are as strikingly beautiful as they aim to be scientifically accurate, down to the smallest detail. Follow a paleoartist through the scientific process of ascertaining the appearance of various dinosaurs from millions of years ago to learn how science, art, and imagination combine to bring us face-to-face with the past.

How do we know what dinosaurs really looked like? We won’t, until one walks through the door. In the meantime, paleoartists use the scientific process to bring us the best possible reconstruction of what they may have looked like. Full color illustrations.
