The Lovereading4Kids comment

A super-inventive comic strip book jam-packed with seven hilarious adventures about the highly entertaining gang of outrageous mini dinosaurs. The gang includes Dave, a dude and the natural leader of the pack, dreamy Ronnie who would rather hang out with butterflies and his bees than his noisy dinosaur friends and feisty Natasha who knows how to hold her own. With their friends, these three make up an ebullient team taking on daring adventures in vividly realised settings from volcanic pools to outer space.


The Terrible Tales of the Teenytinysaurs! by Gary Northfield

Seven short and entertaining stories that will engage young girls and boys.

Is it possible to fly to the moon in a bubble of snot? Can you really have an argument with a cloud? Are there bogey monsters at the bottom of the garden? All these questions and more are explored in an hysterical and charming collection of adventures, following a teeny tiny gang of dinosaurs as they wind each other up and muddle their way through the myths and mysteries of prehistoric life.

Charming, hilarious and super-inventive comic strip adventures from Gary Northfield, creator of Derek the Sheep. Combining storytelling with fun games, laugh-out-loud gags and unforgettable comic book characters, an absolute must-have for all the family.
