I was sent a set of 4 books named The dinosaur detectives to review from Boolino
. Each book is a paperback written by Stephanie Baudet and tells an exciting adventure had by Matt the son of a palaeontologist, who gets transported back to prehistoric times.
The books describe the dinosaurs and will defiantly appeal to any children who have a fascination for these extinct creatures. I can think of a half dozen I used to child mind who would have really enjoyed these books. There are black and white illustrations throughout the books by illary Casasanta
Each book is roughly 70-80 pages long so just long enough to hold the attention of a child aged 7-11 years which this set should suit. The stories also explain a little of how the dinosaurs survived providing some education as well as entertainment for the children reading them.
I would recommend these books to parents to buy for their children, boys especially will get an enormous amount of enjoyment from reading them I know they would have appealed to my boys when they were growing up. having said that girls will also love them. The books retail at £5.99 each or the set of 4 can be purchased from sweet cherry publishing for £23.96, good value if they get children away from sitting in front of a screen!
Disclosure: I was sent the books for the purpose of the review but all opinions are my own.
