In the Dinosaurs series, a talented artist and a noted paleontologist have teamed up to re-create the vanished world of the dinosaurs in comic-book form. Each volume in the series tells the action-packed yet scientifically accurate story of a different dinosaur living in its particular geological time and place. At the back of each volume are several short essays, abundantly illustrated with original drawings and photographs of fossils, that explain more about the creatures and geographical settings encountered in the comic. These essays, written in terms that kids will understand, reveal not only what paleontologists have learned about the age of the dinosaurs, but also how they have learned it, by examining fossils and other types of evidence. Giant vs. Giant, the fifth title in the series, shows what life was like for Argentinosaurus, the largest animal that ever existed. We journey across the plains of prehistoric South America with a group of these outsized herbivores, as they encounter the strange armored sauropod Saltasaurus and the primitive bird Patagopteryx. However, their nemesis, the enormous carnivore Giganotosaurus, is never far behind. The essays following the comic describe the remarkable dinosaurs of the later Cretaceous period, especially the amazingly large species that flourished in what is now Argentina.
