One of our Books of the Year 2013 A delightful farming story – with a difference! Like all farmers, this farmer is busy all day long – feeding the animals, cleaning up after them and even cleaning them. That’s a pretty big job as the animals in question are …Dinosaurs! Wonderful illustrations make the idea of a dinosaur farm a reality.

Synopsis

Dinosaur Farm by Frann Preston-Gannon

From the author of The Journey Home and the first UK recipient of the prestigious Maurice Sendak Fellowship, Frann Preston-Gannon brings us the wonderfully illustrated and very funny Dinosaur Farm. Perfect for sharing and talking about. How would you round-up a herd of unruly triceratops? You think you've got it tough? Try working on a dinosaur farm!

Jack and his pet dino-dog get up early each morning to tend to the duties on the dinosaur farm. First the pterodactyl eggs need collecting. Then the triceratops need to be let out to graze. Of course the diplodocus need a good scrub after their mud bath - they do get very messy! As the day goes on, Jack becomes more battered and bruised by his encounters - the pterodactyl were not the most co-operative when it came to collecting their eggs, the diplodocus's bath time was a bit more exciting than it was meant to be and the boisterous tricerotops sent him flying as they rushed out of their pen! Exhausted after his daily chores, Jack collapses into bed. But wait! Did he close the gate to the T-Rex pen?! And if you've fallen in love with Dino Dog? So have we. Join him on his own adventures coming soon!
