Imagine a predator as tall as a basketball hoop, with a beak like an axe and legs strong enough to break bones with one kick. That’s a terror bird, an enormous bird of prey that roamed the grasslands of South America for sixty million years. Fascinating facts and simple, clear text are perfect for children ready to master reading by themselves.
