Chair of the judges Professor Yadvinder Malhi FRS, said: “Dinosaur books are always a favourite, and there are many out there on the bookshelves. Many are beautifully illustrated but tend to just end up being a catalogue of dinosaur species. This wonderfully illustrated and laid-out book is refreshingly different. For one thing, being an atlas, it covers the geography of which dinosaurs were found where, and where particular discoveries were made, and has great life-size illustrations. The artwork is fresh and engaging, and overall the reader comes away with a much fuller understanding the dinosaur world, and how we have come to find out about this world.” – Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize Nominee
