Award-winning author and illustrator (THINK OF AN EEL) show the world of Quetzalcoatlus, the largest flying contemporary of the dinosaurs, through the eyes of one individual. See him flying in search of food; watch as he lands on mudflats to feed; and see him fly back to his nest to watch as his mate is attacked by vicious Dromaeosauruses. Richly illustrated, this simple narrative is compellingly told and will leave every reader with a vivid image of this most fascinating of creatures and the world it inhabited.

Publisher and industry reviews
Praise for I AM A TYRANNOSAURUS and I AM AN ANKYLOSAURUS: 'The texts are deceptively simple but complement the stunning illustrations ... telling a compelling story through words and image.' -- Books for Keeps 20040101 Still remembering her splendid THINK OF AN EEL, I've been hoping for some more Karen Wallace to read and, 'Whoopee', here we are. I'm not much of a one for dinosaurs but [this book is] a delight. ... And then there's Wallace's masterly way with words. Pared to a minimum with no syllable wasted, [her] texts are comparable with Mayne or Morpurgo - they could happily join an anthology of verse or be set to music... Books like these pave the way for an absorbing interest in fossils and the prehistory pantheon... Absolutely great! And, oh yes, fine pictures from Mike Bostock. For anyone from 3 to 10. -- Books for Keeps 20041101 Through beautiful collour illustrations and a very selective text, we read of the life of a flying form [of dinosaur] ... This is an ideal picture and information book especially for 3 to 6-year-olds. -- School Librarian 20050401 The books have loevly illustrations, so you can see the creatures going about their daily lives. They will appeal to children of all ages who are into the great pre-hisotric beasts. -- This is Kids Stuff 20060101 Through beautiful colour illustrations and a very selective text ... an ideal picture and information book especially for 3-6 year olds. -- The School Librarian 20060501 I really enjoyed reading .. the pictures are really bright and colourful. I am 6 and I enjoyed the story ... the words were really clear to read and the writing was a bit wiggly which was fun to look at. -- KidAround 20060501 Text and pictures complement each other perfectly in these two stunningly llustrated books. They are violent but no doubt true to life at the time. -- Carousel 20060601
