Famous artists are given dinosaur-inspired pseudonyms and prehistoric biographies as a way of introducing young readers to art history in a fun and inviting new way in Jurassic Classics: The Prehistoric Masters of Art Volume 1. The book features an assortment of artist biographies, each with a prehistoric twist. Artists Leonardo da Vilociraptor, Vincent Van Guanadon, and Claude Monetator get “dino” histories, with a clever parody of the real artist’s most famous sketches and paintings included. Accurate biographies of the real-life artists 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.
