The Lovereading4Kids comment

A spin off from Paul and Henrietta Stickland’s much-loved Dinosaur Roar, this is a real treat for young palaeontologists. A simple story about a diplodocus called Dinosaur Munch, and how much he likes to eat, slips in all sorts of information about dinosaurs and their world. The pictures, while they portray the dinosaurs almost as cartoon characters, are accurate and also full of information. In the course of his browsing Dinosaur Munch meets fellow dinosaurs including a stegosaurus Dinosaur Whack, and a Parasaurolophus called Dinosaur Honk. The story is written by the inimitable Jeanne Willis, who else could incorporate the word parasaurolophus into a picture book rhyme without missing a beat? There’s a nice punchline to make children laugh, and it finishes with a page of interesting Diplodocus facts. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Dinosaur Munch! The Diplodocus by Jeanne Willis

Inspired by the classic picture book Dinosaur Roar! by Paul Stickland and Henrietta Stickland, this colourful series introduces a range of authentic dinosaur characters to very young children. The wonderful rhyming text has been written by award-winning author Jeanne Willis, and introduces Dinosaur Munch and various other dinosaur characters in a story suitable for the very youngest children.

Very funny, and great to read aloud, Dinosaur Munch! The Diplodocus has been approved by the Department of Earth Sciences at the Natural History Museum in London, and the book includes a spread of simple dinosaur facts and a pronunciation guide.
