A day planting seeds with Mum turns out to be much more fun than Albie could have ever imagined when he discovers his seeds have magically grown a great big jurassic jungle full of colourful dinosaurs. Brilliant and very funny.

Synopsis

How to Grow a Dinosaur by Caryl Hart

Albie is a normal little boy who has extraordinary adventures. When he helps his mum in the garden by planting some seeds, he can't quite believe his eyes the next morning. The garden has grown beyond all belief and these are not just any old plants - oh, no - Albie's seeds have grown into great big jurassic jungle! He rushes outside to discover what else has grown - a fantastic mix of real live DINOSAURS! A colourful, funny follow-up to Supermarket Zoo.
