What every dinosaur-mad child has been waiting for - a young fiction series that really knows its Tyrannosaurus from its Triceratops. The Guardian 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 Dinosaur Cove rules!

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.
