A welcome return for a classic picture with a timeless message. Long Neck the Dinosaur lives alone in the forest with just the small animals around him as his friends. He is happy. But then Thunderfoot, a huge new dinosaur arrives. Long Neck hates the intrusion and is terrified by the size of the newcomer. A deadly battle ensues as the two dinosaurs fight for supremacy. How can they overcome their distrust and become friends? A wonderful story about tolerance, friendship and trust.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Two dinosaurs, one with a long neck and the other thunder-footed, meet for the first time. Each scares the other out of his wits - they turn tail, plan traps, but end as friends giving a dinosaur party in the forest. Wry. humorous text: huge colourful pictures.
