SynopsisThe Littlest Dinosaur by Michael Foreman
A new picture book by award-winning artist Michael Foreman A little dinosaur realises that its size is also its strength
Reviews'It is the illustrations - as always with this author / illustrator - that make the book special. The colours glow and shimmer, and the round, cuddly shapes of the dinosaurs are not the least bit threatening. If you've never seen a dinosaur smile, you are in for a treat!'
