An exciting new adventure in Dino World, an amazing and extraordinary secret place where dinosaurs still live. On a new exploration, Jamie and his friends find a blissfully cool oasis full of interesting wildlife in the middle of the hot Triassic desert. All seems calm until a herd of plateosaurs come storming by. Will the boys be able to stop them and more importantly, will they be able to get right out of their way?

Synopsis

Dinosaur Cove 15 : Rampage of the Hungry Giants by Rex Stone

Jamie and Tom decide to practise their tracking skills in the secret Triassic dino world. With their little dinosaur friend, Wanna, in tow, they are soon on the trail of a herd of plateosaurs. But when a baby plateosaur is left behind, the boys and Wanna decide to help it get back to its herd. When they catch the herd up at a beautiful oasis, the boys sit down for a well-earned rest. But the plateosaurs are eating everything in sight, and the other creatures there don't look very happy about it, in fact they look like they might take out their anger on the boys! It's up to Jamie, Tom, and Wanna to divert the plateosaurs away from the oasis before they destroy everything.

Reviews

Dinosaur Cove rules! * Tom, aged 8 * Dinosaur Cove. . . has the potential to follow a Rainbow Magic-style trajectory. The slick, desirable packaging makes this stand out from the crowd. * The Bookseller * What every dinosaur-mad child has been waiting for-a young fiction series that really knows its Tyrannosaurus from its Triceratops. * The Guardian *

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.
