If you find any book by Dorling Kindersley in their Eyewitness Series, buy it for a child near you!
The Eyewitness Fossil is no exception. Aimed at inquiring minds from Upper Primary and beyond, the excellent information and picture research are a wonder and will keep most children browsing for hours! Highly recommended.
Fossil was published in the Eyewitness series by Dorling Kindersley in 1990, but is still available.
