The Long-Lost Secret Diary of the World’s Worst Dinosaur Hunter
by Tim Collins
Ann is a teenager living in 1870s England. She enjoys looking for dinosaur bones, and gets an opportunity to search for fossils in America. Ann seems to be a bit unlucky, but thinks her luck has changed with this opportunity.
Written as a diary, Ann recounts her travels across America with her conman father. Humorous, yet informative. I liked how the characters were inspired by real people, and dinosaur facts were featured throughout the book. At the end of the book is a brief history of dinosaurs, details about the people that were the inspiration for the characters, and a glossary. A good read for older kids.
I received a digital copy of this book from Jolly Fish Press and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
