TV scientist Ben Garrod presents the biggest extinction events ever, told from the point of view of evolution's superstars, the most incredible animals ever to swim, stalk, slither or walk our planet. Whether you're 9 or 90, his unique exploration of the most destructive, yet most creative, force in nature makes top level science fun.

Here are the superstars of the story of life, from the super-weird to the super-ferocious. Usually a species has 10 million years or so of evolving, eating, chasing, playing, maybe doing homework, or even going to the moon before it goes extinct.

Dunkleosteus was super-snappy. With a bite 10 times stronger than a great white shark, it could snap its jaws 5 times faster than you can blink! Discover its habitat, what it ate and what it was like to live in the shadow of this one-tonne predator until it went extinct at the end of the Age of Fishes.

Collect all eight books about animals we have lost in mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega-volcanoes, clashing continents and climate change.

Also includes:
* Past brought to full-colour life by palaeoartist Gabriel Ugueto
* Ask an Expert contributions from leading scientists
* Glossary and pronunciation guide

'This book is amazing and the illustrations are spectacular! I have learnt so much about the history of life on earth and what causes extinction, so it does not only focus on Dunkleosteus ...
