FYI: NEW BOOK



     The Dinosaur Society's dinosaur encyclopedia / Don Lessem & Donald
F. Glut ; illustrations by Tracy Ford ... (et al.) ; scientific
advisors, Peter Dodson ... (et al.). 1st ed. New York : Random House,
c1993. xli, 533 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. ISBN 0679417702 $25.00  LC94-117716

     From the jacket: "first comprehensive and lavishly illustrated
encyclopedia of the more than 600 known species of dinosaurs, for
readers of all ages, from ten on up ... first book to describe and
illustrate all dinosaurs, including Eorapter, found in Argentina in
1993, and Utahraptor, discovered in the United States in 1992 ... Each
dinosaur is identified by genus, species, and family, and where and
when it lived. Whenever possible, appearance, habitat, and behavior are
described, and full-body and skeletal restorations are shown."
     Also included is a chapter on Dinosaur classification; a chapter
on genera formerly classified as dinosaurs, but now considered not
dinosaurs; and a chapter on dinosaurs by time period.
     This book definitely "feels" as though it is intended for young
readers--so keep that in mind.
