Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
Rich with challenging vocabulary appropriate for the subject area, Jurassic Grampa maintains the reader's interest from beginning to end. Starting the hysterical and humorous adventure through Nostril Caverns, Wiley, Grandpa and the gang discover all types of prehistoric characteristics at the site. When Grandpa causes a large dinosaur egg to tumble down behind the group, they find themselves in the presence of Hans Lotion and his grandson, notorious criminals who obsessively talk with a "V" accent. The villains take Grandpa's treasured egg after surprising the group with the information that the egg is in fact a lump of dinosaur droppings. The next day at school Wiley presents one of his treasures found in the cave, Lupe the lizard, to the entire class. Lupe entertains the class and fascinates the teacher to the point that the students' science projects are put on hold to give the stunning lizard undivided attention. Suddenly Lupe transforms into a large intimidating T. Rex after nibbling on a "snack of Nature's Nuggets all-organic lizard pellets with actual bits of dried dragonflies." Can anyone stop the T. Rex? Will Wiley figure out the cause for this strange pandemonium? Read and see. Reviewer: Erika Clark

    What a great series!

    My son is in third grade and he loves the Wiley and Grampa series. It is the perfect reading level and the illustrations make him want to read it. All of them are filled with humor that is just perfect for a third/fourth grader. I really recommend this series to both boys and girls.
