Dilly the Dinosaur, famous for his exceptionally loud, 150 mile-an-hour scream when he doesn’t get what he wants, is here celebrated in a dozen stories. Unfortunately, Dilly always attracts disaster so, it is not surprising that in each of this familiar, domestic episodes reflecting everyday life (but with dinosaur characteristics) such as starting school and a sleepover, things go rather noisily wrong…

Synopsis

Dilly's Bumper Book of Stories by Tony Bradman

Dilly doesn't mean to be naughty. He just has a way of trying to get what he wants. Find out what happens when his school report is on the way, when he has a sleepover party and when he starts at a new school. And watch out - when he's frustrated, Dilly uses his ultra-special, 150-mile-per-hour super-scream to full effect. This book presents twelve very funny stories about a little dinosaur with a BIG voice.

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
