In 'Stampede of the Giant Reptiles' a meteor hits the earth causing the a herd of edmontosaurs to charge to their certain doom unless the boys can stop them, and in 'Catching the Speedy Thief' Jamie, Tom and Wanna pit their wits against the lightning quick velociraptor, with its razor sharp teeth!

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.
