Synopsis

The Littlest Dinosaur's Big Adventure by Michael Foreman

The littlest dinosaur gets lost one day when he goes out on his own. While at first it is all a lot of fun, soon he starts to get concerned, particularly when he starts to hear some crying from behind a tree! When he finds out who is crying, the littlest dinosaur has to be much braver than he thought he could be.

Reviews

Praise for 'The Littlest Dinosaur's Big Adventure':

'Gently addresses fears experienced by many children and reassures them -KidsStuff

'Foreman takes us on a powerful, emotional journey ... cleverly exploiting tone and perspective to add emphasis. No gimmicks here. Just pastels, watercolour and an elegantly simple text ... All nicely reassuring' - The Herald (Glasgow)

'Michael Foreman's use of colour evokes mood brilliantly ... This simple tale is simply delightful' - The Scotsman

Praise for 'The Littlest Dinosaur':

'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! - Books for Keeps
