Take a trip to pre-historic Earth!

Journey backwards to prehistoric Earth, starting in the present and zipping back hundreds of millions of years, stopping in frozen ice ages, lush prehistoric rainforests and ancient oceans along the way. Bold illustrations allow children to discover fascinating creatures, including hungry dinosaurs and enormous mammoths.

Infographics reveal the secrets of Earth's geology and environments, linking ancient creatures and places to our own time and to some of the major issues facing societies right now, such as climate change, deforestation and extinction events.

  • The perfect book for dinosaur lovers, Prehistoric wows with its life-like illustrations and entices dinophiles to explore beyond their favourites to equally thrilling sabre-toothed cats with huge fangs, enormous insects roaming the skies and underwater monsters with terrifying teeth 
  • Developed in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC 
  • Uses prehistory to cast light on the challenges facing the world today, including climate change and species extinction
