There’s danger all around Tom and Jamie as they explore dinosaur cove in this exciting new adventure. First, they have to deal with the cute looking but sharp toothed Compsagnathus whose carnivore instincts are distinctly threatening but then they have to cope when the whole volcano begins to erupt. Luckily, they escape just in time… All kids love dinosaurs and this series will provide hours of reading fun for even the most reluctant reader.


Dinosaur Cove 12 : Assault of the Friendly Fiends by Rex Stone

Are you ready for the best adventure ever? When Jamie and Tom spot the Compsagnathus on the mountainside they think the little creatures are cute. But they soon realize these pesky carnivores aren't as sweet as they look. Worse still, as the boys race to get away, the mountain begins to shake. It's a volcano! And it's about to blow ...


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.
