The Battle of the Dinosaurs, by George Poppel, is illustrated by Scott Bennett. It is an anti-war children’s fable. It presents a new theory concerning the extinction of the dinosaurs: two opposing camps of “super dinosaurs” terrorized the world and each other in preparing for battle. Despite all the battle planning, canning and digging of tunnels, no battle was ever fought. The dinosaurs causes their own demise by spending too much effort on defense.
