You guessed it – this book is ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS! This amazing oversized hardcover book and is absolutely stunning. The main cover has a raised-effect Tyrannosaurus rex on it – run your fingers over it to feel the scaled. With shiny gold lettering across the front, this is a really good-looking book, inside and out.

Crack open the cover and you’re in for a real treat. The contents of this book are designed to look like the research notebook or field guide of a retired paleontologist. The contents are breathtaking. The book is beautifully illustrated by Robert Nicholls and James Robins – all the different dinosaurs described inside come alive in full color and tons of detail.

Check out the inside cover – it contains an envelope that really opens to reveal a letter from the author, which explains the handbook you’re about to read is a collection of notes from years of studying dinosaurs.


And the surprises don’t end there. Each page of this book covers a new topic, and includes flaps you can unfold to reveal more amazing dinosaur information, pullouts, maps, specimens and more. It’s a really great way to get interactive and learn all about dinosaurs.


Finally, the book comes with a huge, full-color, double-sided poster you can pull out and hang on your wall. It shows different species of dinosaurs on one side, and the relative size of dinosaur footprints (compared to human footprints) on the other.

Don't ask why, but it does, You are probably a girl reading this right now, and at some point we all meet a lesser spotted guy in the forums. You don't really know they're a guy unless they have a lamborghini for their profile picture. Then you get one in your roleplay, and since you're a little embarrassed to have smooching and girly talks with a REAL LIFE guy in the room, everyone rushes to make their character a tomboy. But soon you will realise that this guy is cool, and he may even become your best friend and you'll be on all the same RPs. Then it's a race to get your character to have a love story with his character. If you meet a guy before you get into RP, sometimes you'll become the dynamic duo that goes around flipping everyone off in the comment section like "WE DON'T GIVE A HOOT!". Basically, this guy is the firetrucking best. I actually don't have a number 6 atm but I did in my previous account. In real life my ONLY friends are dudes, funnily enough. XD
