More adventures for Jack. This time his distracted Mum just gives the go-ahead for Jack to lead his cousins on a hunt for dinosaurs. Tiptoeing into the darkness they find all kinds of scary creatures but they all know – there are no such things as dinosaurs. Can they be quite sure? Readers have the last laugh when the fold out spread reveals some surprises.


I Thought I Saw a Dinosaur! by Emma Dodd

Fresh from What Pet to Get, Jack – the boy with the HUGE imagination – is back!

This time Jack has convinced his cousins to go on an epic dinosaur hunt, but who is hunting whom?
