Recently, I’ve had the pleasure to beta read for a fellow writer. I have wanted to beta read for some time, though- three kids, my own writing, and a move can put a road block on the “want” list. To sum it up, I realize that it is well worth fitting into the daily grind to have the chance to not only help a fellow author- but enlightening to experience the sheer enjoyment of getting your hands on a great read (that is not yet available for anyone to snag a copy of!)
This is not the first book in the series that I have read, and while I have several more books to catch up on the series- this is one that I must pass on to fellow readers.
Stephen Penner is the man behind my “must read” recommendation for young readers with the “Professor Barrister’s Dinosaur Mysteries”. The level for this series may be ranked for K-3rd grade, but as an adult, I must admit that I am hooked!
Penner’s ability to teach while entertaining is a sure proof way to keep you wanting more of the series. The illustrations of the books are wonderfully detailed without becoming overwhelming as only the greats (such as Shel Silverstein) accomplished with book art.
Normally, I would suggest a book/series with a genre or age group. In this case, young children, older children, parents, grandparents, teachers; all of those with a pulse- you will learn and enjoy doing so if you allow yourself to turn the pages of one of the Professor Barrister’s Dinosaur Mysteries.
