Jurassic Classics: The Prehistoric Masters of Literature by Saskia Lacey: Review and Giveaway!
Posted by Krystal Larson at 12:00 AM Wednesday, April 6, 2016
Read classic literature from the eyes of the dinosaurs, and learn about the literary greats through humorous, prehistoric mashups and fun, dinosaur-themed facts.
Jurassic Classics: The Prehistoric Masters of Literature mixes prehistoric dinosaur humor with some of the great names of literary history to teach the classics in a fun and inviting way for children of all ages. The first book in a new series, The Prehistoric Masters of Literature, features an assortment of well-known, classic authors, such as the Bronte sisters, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare, all under the guise of favorite dinosaur mashups (i.e. the "Brontesaurus" sisters). The Prehistoric Masters of Literature features a brief "dino" biography of each author, with real facts intertwined and modified to fit with the prehistoric theme. Each biographical spread also includes a short mini book of one of the author's classic novels, glued into the last pages. For instance, an abridged version of Wuthering Swamp Heights is included alongside the Brontesaurus sisters' biography. With the timeless popularity of dinosaur subjects for children, this new series is sure to engage and delight, as well as teach children about famous figures in history.
I loved this book! From the subject matter to the inventive illustrations to the mini books included within the books Jurassic Classics is a fun read. The author came up with a fun and interesting way to introduce children to famous literary authors of the past and to combine that introduction with a memorable topic: dinosaurs. I could see a child having an easier time understanding these famous authors when they can associate the authors with interesting dinosaur species and stories. The parent or librarian will also love that the book can be used to teach children about both dinosaurs and certain authors. I loved how creative the stories were and that the reader does not need to read through the entire book all at once, but can choose to put the book down after each story and pick the book up again later. There is no doubt that each child (and adult) will love opening and reading the mini books at the end of the stories. Overall, this is a great read for children and their parents or caregivers.
