I stumbled across this fantastic children's book yesterday while the wife and I were in our local bookstore 'Charlie Byrne's'. Entitled 'Wings, Horns & Claws', and created by Christopher Wormell this book is by far the most beautifully illustrated children's dinosaur book I have ever seen.

Wings, Horns, & Claws

A Dinosaur Book of Epic Proportions
Pages: 64 Age range: 3–8 years
ISBN: 9780762424191

Wings, Horns, & Claws: A Dinosaur Book of Epic Proportionsis an affectionate pictorial tribute to those prehistoric animals, who grow with every turn of the page reinforcing the cognitive learning concept of size and proportion. Wormell’s trademark beautiful woodcut illustrations are paired here with very detailed descriptions of his subjects, many of them the lesser-known, unsung dinos of the Jurassic world. His unique vision and incredible artistry elevate this book above the crowd of volumes devoted to the Earth’s coolest monsters. A great choice for kids and even adults who can’t get enough of these mythic creatures.
