Summary:Imagine medieval times where the dinosaurs never went extinct. When dinosaur stable boy Henry Fairchild stops a vicious T-Rex from attacking his master, he is invited to join the most elite group in Brecklan, the brave Knights of Panterra, the Dino Knights. But before he can prove himself, the enemies of Brecklan attack with a flock of pterodactyls and kidnap Lord Harding. Whether he’s ready or not, Henry and the Dino Knights mount a daring rescue mission…but nothing is what it seems. Dino Knights is a fast-paced chapter book for readers who’ve enjoyed Beast Quest and How to Train Your Dragon.
This is a really cute, fast-paced and fun middle grade book that I would definitely recommend to children and adults alike. It was lovely to read how Henry was able to help not just the dinosaurs but also able to join the exclusive Dino Knights. I loved the mentions of the different dinosaurs in the book and how they’re tamed with Brecklan Berries. It was just such an interesting concept – and let’s be honest – who doesn’t wish they could ride or fly on the back of a dinosaur?
It was wonderful how everything in this book came together and how they all worked together to help save the country. It was just a lovely little story that I devoured in one sitting and I am positive that many children will absolutely love this book. I think it could be a really good book to talk through with children as well, especially when it comes to working as a team and understanding animals as well. It is definitely a book of which I am highly anticipating the sequel for as well! So, what are you waiting for? Go and give this book a read!
