The Lovereading4Kids comment

There’s a laugh-out-loud ending to this story of eating! Dinosaur wants some lunch, the lunch wants a snack, the snack just wants a small bite! When everyone has had their meal terrible things begin to happen! Luckily, the dinosaur gives a very big BURP and soon everything is back to normal!

A Piece of Passion from David Bennett, Publisher, Boxer Books

I love Algy's style of drawing - his work is observant, full of fun and mischief and leaps from the page. We published his first book, Fine as we are. Algy is like many authors and artists - he has a day job - and still gives 200% to his books. Dino Bites! is big, bold fun - and is on its third reprint in the USA.

Synopsis

Dino Bites! by Algy Craig Hall

“This is the dinosaur looking for lunch, this is the lunch looking for a snack, this is the snack
looking for a bite!” It’s a dinosaur eat dinosaur world out there, and DINO BITES! has them eating one after the other with surprising and hilarious consequences.

Reviews

..this brief, briskly-paced adventure will...capture the attention of the very youngest dinosaur fans--and give the adults reading aloud a good giggle too. Cartoon-style illustrations of three kinds of dinosaurs and a dragonflylike insect gallop, dart and swoop in a primitive portrait of a basic food chain that quickly pivots to become a prehistoric take on the old lady who swallowed a fly...features amusing internal rhymes and parallel sentences that punch up the joke. Variations in font mirror the differences between the characters, heavy black outlines make the creatures pop against brightly colored pages, and the simply drawn eyes and mouths are remarkably expressive...it's also tasty fun that goes down easily and is sure to provoke demands for seconds (and thirds and...). -- Kirkus Reviews
