"Though appearing fierce on the book's cover, this ancient flying reptile comes off as quite cute in the digital illustrations as it dives for fish and soars through Jurassic skies. Four brief, highly readable chapters introduce this dinosaur contemporary, describe the time period in which it lived, its diet, and scientific discoveries that shape what we know about it. Almost every double-page spread contains a dynamic, page-filling illustration, sometimes overlaid with an infographic relating interesting facts, such as its wingspan (about three feet). Larger, two-page infographics also depict the Pterodactyl physical features and size in relation to other pterosaurs. Comparisons to modern animals (e.g., bats and pelicans) will also help readers visualize this prehistoric creature. Standard nonfiction features frame this enticing entry in the attractive Dinosaur Discovery series."
