Synopsis

Dino-Splashing Turquoise A/1a by Steve Smallman

The dinosaur friends are puzzled to find that their waterfall is not working. They set off up the riverbed to investigate but Flapper's non-stop eating and Nutter's crashing add to their troubles. When a T-rex attacks them, he releases the boulder holding the water back and the friends float back home. They escape the T-rex by going over the waterfall.

Steve Smallman on Steve Smallman:

I started working as an illustrator when I was in my final year at Art College and now, over 28 years later I still haven't got a proper job! I've illustrated literally hundreds of books, predominantly in educational publishing. A few years ago I was main illustrator for Longman's 'Story Street' reading scheme, illustrating 79 titles and writing 5.

I've worked in children's television, specifically in character development and most notably in the 'Raggy Doll' series in the mid to late 1980's. I have also done a certain amount of licensed work, illustrating characters such as Postman Pat, Bill and Ben and Sesame Street.

I've been described as an 'Animal Artist', not I hasten to add because I'm wild and hairy but because I love to draw animals and especially like to give them human characteristics.

I've been writing children's books for about 6 years and have already had several picture books published with more in development.

I've got 4 great children and although they're all adults now, my memories of them growing up inspire and inform my writing.
