Dodo and Dinosaur is a small Norfolk-based design studio run by mother and daughter team Jill Michelle Smith and Jennifer Watson. Their exciting new book 'An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ is designed to inspire young readers’ curiosity in natural history through a collection of twenty-six weird and wonderful beasts.
Written in an accessible rhyming style and packed with fun and engaging facts, the book is designed for both supported and independent reading. Aimed at children of primary school age, the amusing verses and vibrant illustrations invite little explorers into a prehistoric world which is just waiting to be discovered.
“The children in our year group absolutely adored 'An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures'! The beautiful illustrations captured their imagination and they were intrigued to find out about many interesting creatures that they had not learnt about before in school. The unique names given to each creature, to correspond with the letter of the alphabet, was a lovely touch that got the children chatting about which animal their name matched with! Many of them were so enthused that they went home to do some extra research about some of the new creatures they had discovered, and were keen to share these with the rest of the class. It was a perfect core text for our 'Dinosaurs' unit and made a lovely change to the usual non-fiction books we use. I would highly recommend it!” Miss Herbert, Curriculum Lead and Assistant Head of School James Wolfe Primary with Centre for the Deaf, Greenwich
Combining Jennifer’s background in graphic design and experience working in the conservation and heritage sector, with artist and illustrator Jill’s unique style, the pair started the journey to bring these extraordinary extinct creatures to life. The species featured in the book include a few which children may already be familiar with, such as woolly mammoth and dodo, but most are more obscure, yet certainly no less interesting, making the book’s illustrations all the more fun to discover.
The idea behind ‘An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ came from both Jill and Jennifer’s love of art and nature. With a young son already fascinated by dinosaurs and all things prehistoric, Jennifer wanted to encourage young children to discover a new book about more unusual species, while helping to develop a true love of natural history. With this vision in mind, Jill was keen to create artwork that was both child-friendly and a reasonably accurate interpretation of the creatures’ natural forms.
Caring for our planet and its incredible species is at the heart of Dodo and Dinosaur’s ethos and researching these extinct creatures (some only extinct as a result of human interference), has emphasised the importance of sustainability. ‘An A-Z of Extraordinary Extinct Creatures’ is printed on 100% sustainably sourced, carbon balanced paper in association with World Land Trust, helping to protect critically threatened rainforests.
In addition to their book, Jill and Jennifer have also been busy creating a beautiful new range of sustainable products for children, featuring their A-Z designs. Perfect for children’s bedrooms, playrooms and school bags, their range of Extraordinary Extinct© products are made from organic and eco-friendly materials.
