Praise For Jurassic Classics: The Prehistoric Masters of Literature: Discover literary history with a prehistoric twist!

"a canon-expanding gallery of great writers that will have every reader, dinophile or not, roaring.....plus, in small, attached booklets, a hilariously condensed representative work for each....readers will come away with a fund of names, titles, and general expectations that will serve them well in future..."

- Kirkus Reviews

"a fun introduction to classic literature in the vein of Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."
