Are you ready for a double length Cretaceous adventure? Nacho the puppy has followed Jamie and Tom into their secret Cretaceous world. As he disappears after a speedy lizard, the boys give chase. But just as they reach him they hear a terrifying ROAR! Nacho may think he's big and strong, but surely he's no match for a ferocious albertosaurus?

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.
