The Cretaceous- The Golden Age of Dinosaurs will cover the most dramatic period in the life of the Earth, the time when the most amazing dinosaurs roamed on land and the seas were ruled by giant reptiles. This 70-page book will reconstruct the time and landscapes of places that exist today, which will transport the young reader to those times. The narrative would revolve mostly around a typical day in the Cretaceous with its key characters, and the landscape, and pegging this to real places. In addition to amazing images, this book will have colouring pages, DIY, short experiments, puzzles

of the side lines and margins. A short bibliography and a comprehensive map of fossil sites will be included. As in any other series, this single volume in itself will be a complete story and will leave the reader wanting to know what happened earlier or later. A teaser to the next part will appear in the end.
