Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Tyrant King by Kenneth Carpenter Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Tyrant King, Hardback (July 2008)

With its massive head, enormous jaws, and formidable teeth, Tyrannosaurus rex has long been the young person's favorite creepy carnivore in the Mesozoic zoo. This collection explores such questions as why T rexhad such small forelimbs; how the dinosaur moved; and, what bone pathologies tell us about life in the Cretaceous.

Horns and Beaks by Kenneth Carpenter Horns and Beaks, Hardback (November 2006)
