    I cannot imagine a more bizarre yet better way to introduce children to literature than combining dinosaurs and canonical authors at the top of the literary pyramid! Prepare your children for the literary world with William Shakespeareasaurus, Brontesaurus Sisters, Edgar Allan Terrordactyl, Jane Austenlovenator, Charles Dickensodocus and Mark Twainceratops! An amazing example of juvenile nonfiction and sure way to warm up 7+ age children for the most well-known authors of classic literature.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. I mean dinosaurs and classic adult literature? How could that be child friendly I wondered. But it turns out that it works surprisingly well in this case. Turning each author first into a dinosaur and then including a brief mini book tweaked to be about dinosaurs made for some amusing reading. This book actually provides an interesting introduction to authors that children will definitely run into later in their lives including: William Sh I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book.

After each 'dino' biography and mini book selection there is a brief biography of the real person and what he/she is best known for writing. I actually really enjoyed reading this and think it would work well for children being introduced to these classic authors for the first time. That does not mean that the child is necessarily ready for reading the classics themselves, just being introduced to it for the first time. Reading and understanding the classics does of course depend on age, maturity, and the child him/herself in terms of readiness to understand the themes and content.

    This book is adorable, and hilarious. Full of puns and alliteration, it offers historically accurate (and age appropriate) descriptions and explanations for several classic authors. However, there is also a "dinosaur " version of each author, along with an abridged dinosaur version of one of their classic novels or poems. Each book is also 3D, like tiny books within the big book, making it that much more precious.

    A playful introduction to 6 novelists from England and America, including minibooks Each author’s dinosaur mashup descriptions are fun and might possibly make it easier for students to remember some facts about these classic writers. Each mashup is followed by 2 pages of accurate biographical info. One of 3 new titles in the Jurassic Classics series – others are Prehistoric Masters of Art, and Presidential Masters of Prehistory. Middle grade nonfiction.

    Clever and hilarious take on the Masters of Literature. This is a fun, light-hearted, and educational look at some of the greats in literature: William Shakespeareasaurus, the Brontesaurus Sisters, Edgar Allan Terrordactyl, Mark Twainceratops, Charles Dickensodocus, and Jane Austenlovenator. Each master is explored through the humorous lens of being a dinosaur living in prehistoric times and features a small "book within a book" of one of their most popular works.

The silly examination of the author is followed by a short biographical sketch. The illustrations are adorable and engaging. My girls (who sometimes like dinos, sometimes not) have thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to the classics. Can't wait for the next in the series... Prehistoric Masters of Art.

    This is a very clever and cute book. I love the dinosaur versions of famous authors. It is such a creative idea. Each dinosaur author has a blurb and a story included, as well as a blurb about the actual author. The illustrations are adorable and fun. I loved looking at all of the pictures. A great way to get children interested in classic authors.

    Quality of the hardcover and pages are wonderful! Also...What a clever book! Little ones may be confused by this book. I'd say 6+? But there are still some great stories for under 6. The mini pop up books inside were a hit and easier to understand for the little ones. This book will grow with your child. Quality of the hardcover and pages are wonderful! Also...What a clever book!
