The Lovereading4Kids comment

A great introduction for 5+ year olds to the well-known, and sometimes not so well- known, facts about dinosaurs. There are masses of facts about dinosaurs crammed into this attractively produced and entertainingly written information book. Henry, his dog Mothball and his friend Jaggers find out all about dinosaurs with the longest necks, dinosaurs with feathers and wings and dinosaurs with terrible claws.

Philip Ardagh, whose very first Grubtown Tale won him the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, is author of numerous books including the award-winning Eddie Dickens adventures, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

He wrote BBC Radio’s first truly interactive radio drama, collaborated with Sir Paul McCartney on his first children’s book and is a ‘regularly irregular’ reviewer of children’s books for the Guardian.
