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.

Stampede of the Giant Reptiles by Rex Stone
Welcome to the Cretaceous! It's usually full of the sounds of dinosaurs roaring and insects buzzing, but when Jamie and Tom visit their secret prehistoric world, they find it strangely quiet. Where are all the dinosaurs? Then they hear an explosion above them and see meteors hurtling towards Earth! As the huge boulders of space rock crash all around them, the boys are knocked off their feet. Pockets of smoke and fire appear in the trees and the dinosaurs begin to emerge from the forest. But a herd of elusive edmontosaurs are completely freaked out and begin to stampede - straight for an enormous meteor crater! If the boys can't stop them, they'll all fall to their deaths!
This is the sixth 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.
