No. 24 in the Dinosaur Cove series. Another adventure set in the heart of Dinosaur Cove, the secret place where Jamie and Tom, with their friend Wanna make some amazing discoveries about creatures from the past. This time, the boys need to stay safe from the giant cockroaches and dragonflies that seem intent of catching them. It’s a thrilling tale of survival against some very unusual and deadly enemies.

No. 24 in the Dinosaur Cove series. When Jamie, Tom and Wanna decide to hunt for prehistoric minibeasts they get more than they bargained for. There are no such things as minibeasts in the Permian - just megabeasts! As the boys run away from the enormous dragonflies that are dive-bombing them, they find a cave to hide in. But what they don't realize is that the cave is home to a giant spider and they're caught in its web. Will the boys and Wanna be able to get free? There's not much time today is the day of the end-of-the-Permian mass extinction event!


'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.
