A Very Jurassic Christmas by Corinna Turner
IT’S CHRISTMAS…BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT!
Young hunter Joshua is looking forward to a Christmas of ice-skating and fun—until the plight of a starving mamma allosaur and her chicks upends his plans. Now he and his uncle must embark on a dangerous journey south, carrying deadly passengers.
Out in the wilderness, there’s no one to help them, they’re running out of tranquilizers—and a killer storm is gathering.
Meanwhile, Darryl and Harry risk their lives for a holiday guest in the perilous, raptor-infested mountains. Will they survive long enough to enjoy their carol service, let alone the rest of the holiday season?
This unSPARKed prequel is a heart-warming, festive thrill ride from the Carnegie Medal Nominated author of the I AM MARGARET series.
Corinna Turner’s unSPARKed series continues growing with this Christmas prequel. In case you are unfamiliar, this collection of short stories is set in a dystopian world where dinosaurs once again roam the earth. These unique installments are filled with exciting adventures and characters of deep faith—an engaging combination for teens.
The first part of A Very Jurassic Christmas was first published in the Gifts: Visible & Invisible anthology brought to you by CatholicTeenBooks.com. This longer edition continues the parallel stories of dino-hunter Joshua and farmgirl Darryl. Joshua’s Christmas plans have been altered when he and his uncle take on the dangerous rescue of a large dino mama and her chicks. Darryl learns a lesson of patience and humility when her Christmas day also goes awry. But when you live in a dino-world, you must always expect the unexpected.
If you have enjoyed these books in the past, you’ll enjoy joining these characters on the winter adventure. If you haven’t read this series, don’t worry. This Christmas story gives a festive glimpse into the characters and unique world that Turner has created. I have a feeling you’ll be wanting to check out more from this series.
A note from Reviewer:
As a writer and a mother, I’m always searching for wonderful Christian books for teens of all ages. I truly believe one way we can encourage teens in their faith is through fiction with positive messages, embedded in great stories. There are many fantastic Christian and Catholic teen novels out today but they can be hard to find. I’m excited to share some of these books with you.
