Boy Were We Wrong About the Dinosaurs by Kathleen V. Kudlinski describes the earliest known explanations of dinosaur fossils – they were the bones of magical dragons. Then Kudlinski explains how some more recent ideas about dinosaurs now sound almost as unlikely. The final section explains how many things we still don’t know and how wrong we may still be. Kudlinski encourages readers that they could be the ones to prove today’s scientists wrong.
