Author(s): Claire Ewart
When dinosaurs thundered across the land, and enormous reptiles swam in the salty oceans, reptiles called pterosaurs ruled the ancient skies. Claire Ewart transports readers back more than ninety million years to the age of the dinosaurs as a young girl finds a fossil, and a day in the life of a pterosaur unfolds. The pterosaur finally lives out its natural life, and layers of Earth and time transform the creature into a fossil--an amazing link to the past waiting to be discovered.
"Ewart's inviting text and dramatic artwork work nicely together to describe the fossilization process in an engrossing way. This book should have wide appeal." --"School Library Journal""""This gateway to the deep past makes engaging listening for emergent naturalists and younger dinophiles." --"Booklist"
Claire Ewart lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana, with her husband, their daughter, and a cat, in a place that was once covered by a warm, shallow sea.
