THE MYSTERY OF THE CRETACEOUS SEA - ENGLISH BOOK
CLIMATE CHANGES IN THE DISTANT PAST
»A natural disaster 66 million years ago wiped out almost all life on Earth. It’s a grim story, but it also shows that life came back, flourished and developed into the world we know today’. Meet Danish author Charlotte Blay and artist Lykke Bianca.
Charlotte and Lykke have hiked several trips along Stevns Klint together, and one day they got the idea to let the inhabitants of the Cretaceous Sea tell a curious boy the story of what actually happened to the dinosaurs. It should of course be a fun and exciting story, they explain, but also enlightening. The book has therefore been created in collaboration with experts in geology and palaeontology, and it is published in Danish, English and German.
»The story of the meteor that wiped out half of all life on Earth is universal,«explains Charlotte Blay. ”The catastrophe hit the entire globe and created the biggest climate changes in Earth’s history. And here in little Denmark, atStevns’ Klint, we find the very best evidence of what happened. That’s why the cliff was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2014.«The hope is to get even more children interested in fossil hunting and makethem reflect on how important it is to take care of nature. Now and in the future.
