Dinosaur Cove 18 : Snatched by the Dawn Thief by Rex Stone

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Are you ready for the best adventure ever? It's a deafening sunrise in the Triassic, but one sound is louder than everything-the shriek of a pack of eohraptors. These noisy creatures take a shine to Wanna and before the boys can stop them, they've run away with him! Now Jamie and Tom are caught in a race against time to save their dino friend.


Dinosaur Cove 18 : Snatched by the Dawn Thief by Rex Stone

Jamie and Tom head off to Dino World to watch the Triassic sunrise. Above the noise of the screeching, buzzing dawn chorus, one sound is louder than anything else so the boys and their dino friend, Wanna, decide to investigate. The eohraptors that they find take a shine to Wanna and, while the boys are distracted, they lure him away. It's up to Jamie and Tom to find their little friend, but when they do eventually catch up with him on the clifftop, they realize they have a bigger problem-an enormous tidal wave is heading their way ...


'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.
