Have you ever wondered what the Earth was like 450 million years ago? Debuting as part of a new series, this 44-page paperback children's book takes readers on an adventure to the Ordovician sea. The first half of the book features art by Alana McGillis, the illustrator of our previous children's book Daring to Dig. The second half of the book highlights fossil specimens and the stories of real-life scientists who study the Ordovician.

Join our friends from the Ordovician Period for an exciting adventure through time! Get ready to explore prehistoric reefs and meet crazy creatures. Nautiloids, trilobites, and jawless fish... who will survive the first big mass extinction?
