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

Flight of the Winged Serpent by Rex Stone

Welcome to the Cretaceous! It's full of the coolest creatures that ever walked the Earth! And Jamie and Tom have found a secret gateway that will take them there for adventures whenever they want. Today the boys and their wannanosaurus pal, Wanna, are on the hunt for a quetzalcoatlus - one of the biggest flying reptiles ever. It's not long before they spot the creatures gliding through the air and as one swoops down, the boys are amazed at how huge it is. But when it picks up Wanna and flies away with him, it's time for the boys to launch a rescue mission and find their little friend.

This is the fourth 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.
