Ankylosaurus by Ben Garrod, illustrated by Scott Hartman, illustrated by Gabriel Ugueto, illustrated by Ethan Kocak
 Ultimate Dinosaurs

Evolutionary biologist and TV scientist, Professor Ben Garrod's fun, funny, informative and collectable eight-book series Ultimate Dinosaurs, includes T. rex, Diplodocus, Spinosaurus and Ankylosaurus.

Covered in armoured plates and sharp spikes, weighing more than an elephant, and swinging a deadly tail club capable of smashing through bone, Ankylosaurus is one of the most famous and easily recognisable dinosaurs ever. But one we know very little about. Why have so few of their skeletons been found? Were they the only indestructible dinosaur? Could they really have used their tails to take down an attacking Tyrannosaurus rex?

Pop a dinosaur in your pocket! Introductions from Chris Packham, Steve Backshall and Dr Jane Goodall. These are the most up-to-date dino books in 66 million years, also available in audio download!

TV scientist, Professor Ben Garrod, is proud to be a geek as he mixes top level science and humour to prove that science is for everyone. Looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, Ben reveals new-look dinosaurs. Additional sections include: Ask an Expert, New Science and Fossil Finder as well as quizzes to test your dinosaur knowledge.
