More exciting Dinosaur adventures for Jamie and his best friend Tom in this new story set in the magical Dinosaur Cove. The two boys are used to meeting some unusual creatures but both are truly terrified first by the croaking of the strange prehistoric frogs and then by something much, much more scary. As ever, the boys' adventures are truly thrilling.


Dinosaur Cove 16 : Haunting of the Ghost Runners by Rex Stone

Jamie and Tom are night fishing and decide to visit their secret dinosaur world in the dark! As they emerge into the Triassic, they hear the night-time sounds of the prehistoric jungle. Together with their dino friend, Wanna, they set up a camp and settle down to tell scary ghost stories, but when some noisy Triassic frogs start up their mating call, it makes the boys jump! And just as they get back to their stories, a sharp-toothed Coelophysis runs past their lantern and they discover they're surrounded ...


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! Tom, aged 8

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.
