The Lovereading4Kids comment

‘Deep in the rainforest, far from the swamp, lived a grumpy Triceratops, Dinosaur Stomp’. So begins this immensely appealing bit of dinosaur faction (a mix of fact and fiction). Dinosaur Stomp is very grumpy indeed so when he gets a chip of stone in his eye from a rock that Ankylosaurus, Dinosaur Bash, is reducing to rubble, he has no-one to turn to. Fortunately, Dinosaur Squeak, a brave little Composygnathus, comes to his rescue. It’s a funny, entertaining story but is also packed with information about dinosaurs and their world. The illustrations, while TV cartoon in feel, still give a very realistic impression of what dinosaurs looked like with their scaly, brightly coloured skin. It concludes with a page of interesting Triceratops facts. ~ Andrea Reece

The World of Dinosaur Roar! is a brand new collectable series of books created by Peter Curtis and produced in association with the Natural History Museum in London.

Synopsis

Dinosaur Stomp! The Triceratops 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.

Very funny, and great to read aloud, Dinosaur Stomp! The Triceratops 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.
