The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fact and fiction and lots of jokes about all things to do with dinosaurs are cleverly melded together in this attractive picture book format which makes finding out fun and easy. Alan Snow’s brilliant illustrations are centred around delightful cross-sections of the giant creatures which look a lot less alarming when thus exposed.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
