Synopsis

A Dinosaur Called Tiny by Alan Durant

Meet Tiny - the pint-sized, prehistoric hero! He may be very small, but he's got a very big heart! When Tiny the dinosaur hatches out of a great, big egg, no one can believe their eyes...he is so small! Tiny grows -a little - and tries to make friends with the other young dinosaurs but they laugh and say that he isn't big enough to play their games. But what Tiny lacks in size, he more than makes up for in spirit...
