Exciting adventures in this easy to read series about two boys and the dangerous dinosaurs they encounter – especially the deadly Tyrannosaurus Rex. Jamie’s dad is opening a dinosaur museum in Dinosaur Cove. Jamie expects to find some fossils but never expects to find any dinosaurs alive. After all, they’ve been extinct for years, haven’t they? Soon Jamie and his new friend Tom find themselves desperate to avoid the deadly creatures. Loads of dinosaur fact boxes support the stories making them a useful mine of information too.

Synopsis

March of the Armoured Beasts by Rex Stone

Welcome to the Cretaceous! It's a pretty cool place, in a prehistoric hot and humid kind of way! Jamie and Tom have followed the fossilized footprints and discovered a secret dinosaur world. There's so much to see and do in the Cretaceous, and with their little dinosaur friend, Wanna, the boys set off to explore. But they're stopped in their tracks when they find a baby ankylosaurus stuck in the mud. It looks like it's about to go under and the boys know they can't just leave it. But how do you pull a dinosaur out of a muddy swamp? Especially when the baby's mother has just arrived and is not too happy to see the boys! This is the third book in the hugely popular Dinosaur Cove series which has now sold over a million copies.

This new edition includes a set of Cretaceous collector cards.

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.
