Exciting adventures in this easy to read series about two boys and the dangerous dinosaurs they encounter – especially the deadly Tyrannosaurus Rex. Jamie’s dad is opening a dinosaur museum in Dinosaur Cove. Jamie expects to find some fossils but never expects to find any dinosaurs alive. After all, they’ve been extinct for years, haven’t they? Soon Jamie and his new friend Tom find themselves desperate to avoid the deadly creatures. Loads of dinosaur fact boxes support the stories making them a useful mine of information too.

Dinosaur Cove 7 : Rescuing The Plated Lizard by Rex Stone

When Jamie and Tom emerge in their secret dinosaur world, they realize that something's changed. The landscape is familiar but also very different from the last time they were here. And when they spot a herd of Stegosauruses, they realize that they've switched from the Cretaceous to the Jurassic! It's the same world but a completely different set of dinosaurs - awesome! A stegosaurus egg is washed away in a rain storm and it's up to the boys, and their dino-friend Wanna, to rescue it and return it to its mother.


Dinosaur Cove ... has the potential to follow a Rainbow Magic-style trajectory. The slick, desirable packaging makes this stand out from the crowd. Becky Stradwick, Borders

About the Author

Rex Stone is the pseudonym used by Working Partners, the creators of Rainbow Magic and other successful series like Animal Ark.

Illustrator Mike Spoor grew up in Northumberland and it was during holidays to the Lake District with his grandparents that he first found a love for drawing. After attending Art College and working as a landscape architect Mike trained as a teacher. He moved to Australia and spent his time flying all over the country to run ceramics workshops. Now, after swapping ceramics for illustration, Mike is back in England and has illustrated many hundreds of books. He considers himself a craftsman rather than a ‘serious’ artist because he is best at drawing scratchy unfinished humorous ideas.
