Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher
Rating : five stars
As you all can see, no art for this review. Why? Well just open this book, the art inside is just gorgeous and I didn’t want to try and do the same and fail LOL.
This book follows William a young man in a wheelchair. William leaves with his father and is being hazed at school by the new girl. Deprived of friends and very sad, William sends a Christmas letter asking for a dinosaur. In the North Pole, before Christmas, Santa’s elves find an egg in the ice and bring it back to Santa. Once hatched they discover that it contained a dinosaur.
I will stop here because honestly since it is a middle grade book you can probably tell how it’s going to go BUT it is so damn well written. I just thought that mixing Christmas and dinosaurs was a pretty darn good idea. I was at work when we opened the box containing these babies and I had to get it right after that. My first reaction was to flip through it and discover the amazing art inside!
Anyone can read this book but if you consider buying it for a child I think 8-10 years would be the smallest age for this book. Of course you can read it to smaller ones but I don’t know…
