Have You Seen Dinosaur? Discovery Atlas: Amazing inventors, explorers and artists from all around the globe

Rayleigh Mann in the Company of Monsters

David Barrow Thiago de Moraes

Ciannon Smart

A little boy, his dog and his friend Elephant decide to go looking for dinosaurs in a city that looks remarkably like New York. They try the museum, the underground train, the skate park, but the trio find it very hard to spot any at all! Finally, when they rest at the top of a rather comfy green hill, they realise what they’ve been overlooking.

It might feel as though humans have lived on earth forever, but we are in fact a relatively new development in the earth’s history: modern humans have only been around for approximately 300,000 years, which isn’t very long at all, if you remember that our planet formed 4.55 billion years ago.

A complex and sinuous fantasy adventure set in a world of monsters where being bad isn’t just good, it’s compulsory.
