Join Toby the Bison in this fact-filled adventure as he explores the Ice Age Tundra and meets some of the giants that roamed its icy surface.

Ten-thousand years ago, the Earth was in the grips of what Paleontologists call the Last Glacial Period, but what you and I have come to know as the Ice Age. The inhabitants?of this frozen landscape lived in some of the coldest conditions the earth has ever experienced. But before these giants grew to their great size, they were young and, like Toby, very, very inquisitive.

Toby and the Ice Giants is a wonderfully illustrated story that delivers digestible facts about the Earth's historic inhabitants. Share in Toby's lively curiosity, experience the danger of the polar climes and meet some larger-than-life characters on the way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lillington's cartoons bring a retro Golden Books charm to the prehistoric setting, while sidebars offer details about each animal's diet, habitat, and more. It's an appealing introduction to eight bygone species and one (ours) that's "Still Going!"
-Publisher's Weekly

Young viewers will marvel at the succession of massive ruminants and predators, which Lillington renders in watercolors with reasonable accuracy, if anthropomorphic facial expressions.
-Kirkus Reviews

No page, not even the endpapers, is wasted in this appealing and informative visit to prehistory
-Wall Street Journal
