Last Laughs: Prehistoric Epitaphs

Macabre, ironic, and witty epitaphs share how prehistoric creatures like the terror bird, the woolly mammoth, and the T-rex met their demise. The ever-entertaining J. Patrick Lewis and the inimitable Jane Yolen offer a collection organized by era, with posthumous poems paired with short secondary text providing additional, factual information about each creature.

What reviewers have said:

  • “Lewis and Yolen accomplish a rare feat—creating a sequel superior to the first…A witty poetry read-aloud that just may spark independent research in dinosaur enthusiasts.” — School Library Journal
