In the dinosaur world, Tyrannosaurus rex is the superstar. Elaine Landau’s Tyrannosaurus rex (ages 7-9) is a typical example of specialized non-fiction, describing the characteristics and habits of the massive flesh-eating dinosaur, as well as theories about why it became extinct. From the table of contents to the glossary and index, the significant facts of Tyrannosaurus rex are presented clearly and directly, and the reading and interest level are appropriate for the primary audience, children ages 7-9. The illustrations with prominent captions clarify and extend the text. Elaine Landau’s Tyrannosaurus rex is a basic meat and potatoes non-fiction title, with a just the facts ma'am approach which will satisfy most young dino-fanatics. ( )
