About this image:
Karen's book, "Dinosaur Hunt," is a fascinating illustrated glimpse into the lives of ancient animals, and features one of the most famous predator-prey confrontations from the Cretaceous.
"Dinosaur Hunt" recounts the confrontation between Acrocanthosaurus and Pleurocoelus along a Cretaceous shoreline more than 65 million years ago. The fossilized footprints from this confrontation are preserved to this day, and can be seen at Dinosaur Valley State Park, in Glen Rose, Texas.
"The intriguing perspectives add drama and immediacy, and the author pushes the limits of the digital media providing impressive detail, for example, the play of light on the mottled textured skin of the giants. This will be a crowd pleaser." — Kirkus Reviews
Dinosaur Hunt includes more than 40 of Karen's illustrations.
