An exquisitely produced nonfiction book that gives an overview of the evolution of life on earth through fossils and dinosaurs to the first humans. Each time period is given its due, without going into much detail. It is good to see a comprehensive book for children about prehistory which is not limited to dinosaurs. The illustration style, depicting many lost landscapes and fascinating extinct creatures, pays homage to 19th century scientific engravings.
