Synopsis

Dinosaur Poems by John Foster

A collection of poems about one of children's favourite subjects - dinosaurs. Including the Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Bookoceros, together with dancing dinosaurs and dinosaurs having a party. Korky Paul's lively illustrations to life this popular poetry book. John Foster and Korky Paul's poetry partnership began over 10 years ago, with the publication of Dragon Poems. The combination of John's inspired and witty selection of poems, with Korky's crazily imaginative and anarchic illustrations, has proved exceptionally popular. 'If this combination of verse and illustration doesn't make you laugh out loud, then you must have missed out on the sense of humour gene' The Guardian A must for the classroom or library. No child could fail to find enjoyment here' Brian Moses
