Synopsis

The Ugly Duckling Dinosaur A Prehistoric Tale by Cheryl Bardoe, Doug Kennedy

Once upon a time, seven tiny duck beaks pecked their way out of their eggs, but the eighth egg was a little bit different ...he wasn't a duck at all, but a dinosaur! Everyone notices how different he is. He's got no waddle! His teeth are too big! He's a monster. Feeling ugly and like an outcast, the dinosaur duckling leaves his family and ventures out on his own. Over time he grows even bigger, but still has trouble finding his rightful home until one day he wanders upon other dinosaurs that look just like him. Turns out he's a T-Rex! A humorous and loving take on The Ugly Duckling that also features dinosaur information.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.
