Hott Review:

If you have have dinosaur enthusiasts at your house you’ll want to read The Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World’s Worst Dinosaur Hunter.

The Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World’s Worst Dinosaur Hunter is a terrific book! While most is a woven story of intrigue that weaves fact and fiction the end outlines the 100+ years of dinosaur hunting that parents and true dinosaur lovers will cherish.

This would have been a great book for my reluctant readers (who are now adults…) and an even better book for my Dino loving nieces & nephews. I can’t wait to share it with them!
