The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fast-paced adventure stories in a world of dinosaurs and as every young parent will know kids of 5+ are more often than not obsessed with dinoaurs. The Dinosaur Cove series has truly hit the spot in getting kids into reading. In this one Jamie, Tom and Wanna have to try and come up with a way to stop two dinosaurs battling it out for supremacy before one of them gets hurt.

This is the 22nd in the series.


Dinosaur Cove 22 : Taming the Battling Brutes by Rex Stone

When Jamie and Tom get separated in the prehistoric jungle they each come across an enormous Permian beast ...an estemmenosuchus and a moschops. Although shocked at first, they both realise that these are gentle plant-eaters and they're not in any danger. But as each of the giants spots the other one the boys realise that they may be harmless when they're left alone, but when another creature is on their territory, they don't like it very much ...in fact, it makes them really angry!


'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.
