Famous literary figures are given dinosaur-inspired pseudonyms and prehistoric biographies as a way of introducing young readers to classic literature in a fun and inviting new way in Jurassic Classics: The Prehistoric Masters of Literature Volume 1. The book features an assortment of author biographies, each with a prehistoric twist. William Shakespeareasaurus, Emily Brontesaurus, and Edgar Allen Terrordactyl get “dino” histories, with a clever parody of one of their classic works included. Accurate biographies of the real-life authors are included, as well. Endearing illustrations and humorous dinosaur mashups provide young readers with a foundation for art history, as well as inspiring them to learn more.
