I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Little Tails in Prehistory by Frédéric Brrémaud
Published on July 11, 2017.
Chipper and Squizzo are a precocious puppy and squirrel who love to explore new and exciting environments, flying their cardboard box airplane to wondrous worlds full of fascinating animals and creatures. In each volume of this fun, educational series, they tour a different location, encountering the real-world animals found there in beautiful illustration and fun cartoon strip antics.
This exciting volume sees our adorable nature guides traveling back in time (in their cardboard time machine) to view the dinosaurs up close!
A puppy and a squirrel travel back in time in their flying, cardboard time machine. They visit the prehistoric ages – from the time of the dinosaurs to the dawn of man. This book is written in comic book style, but it’s also packed with information about the creatures that inhabited the Earth before modern human beings.
It’s an interesting combination of fiction and non-fiction perfect for children ages 5-9. The timelines are intertwined, so don’t expect this to be a historically accurate account of prehistory, but for kids interested in graphic novel style writing and prehistoric animals, it’s a pretty good read.
Because the book spans beyond the dinosaur age, there were many animals that I didn’t recognize. And always with this type of book, there is a reference section at the end which gives more facts about the animals these characters encounter during their journey.
My Rating: 3 Stars
