Some great illustrations here and brilliant storytelling as well. When a longed for pet arrives in the form of dinosaur things get a little out of hand.

Synopsis

A Boy Wants a Dinosaur by Hiawyn Oram

Alex is set on a dinosaur for a pet. So his grandfather took him to the Dino-Store to buy one, a Massospondylus. He called her Fred. But Fred ate far too much, her special hot steaming marsh in the bathroom was unhealthy, and when she goes to school the classroom makes her feel very sick.
