TV scientist Professor Ben Garrod makes top level science accessible to everyone, whether you’re 8 or 80! He presents a unique exploration of the most iconic animals ever to walk, swim, waddle or stalk our planet in this collectable, full-colour eight-book series, illustrated by paleo-artist Gabriel Ugueto.

201 million years ago, and unlike previous events, the End Triassic mass extinction left lots of clues as to what caused it. Among the victims was Lisowicia, a massive nine tonne, elephant-sized animal which, in many ways, was a cross between a reptile and a mammal, but not quite either!

With an additional ‘Ask the Expert’ section, stunning full-colour art on every page, glossary and pronunciation guide, each book will reveal a different extinction story, from mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega volcanoes, to over-hunting by humans and habitat destruction.
