Diggory Digger and the Dinosaurs by Peter Bently


Diggory Digger and the Dinosaurs by Peter Bently

An unforgettable picture book from Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Peter Bently (Cats Ahoy) and illustrator of Guy Parker-Rees (Giraffes Can't Dance). Diggory and his faithful friend Morris the Mole have found a very mysterious tunnel and are itching to investigate. Down, down they go until they come across a rather stubborn boulder blocking their path...Then the boulder went GRUNT! Then it snorted and growled! Then it opened one eye, then another and HOWLED! Diggory cried, 'That's no boulder before us!' 'No!' squeaked the Mole. 'It's a - DIGGEROSAURUS!' The perfect read for everyone who loves diggers and dinosaurs; brilliant for kids aged 3 and up. Children who enjoyed The Shark in the Dark, The Great Sheep Shenanigans, and the Great Dog Bottom Swap will love Diggory Digger. Peter Bently is the award-winning, best-selling picture book author of Shark In The Dark, Lark In The Ark, The Great Dog Bottom Swap and Cats Ahoy! Bently was awarded the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize for Cats Ahoy! In the 'Funniest book for under sixes' category. Guy Parker-Rees was described in the Rough Guide to Children's Books as being 'One of the most exciting young artists in the children's book world.' Notable successes include Giraffes Can't Dance, written by Giles Andreae (Orchard Books) which celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2014 and Spookyrumpus, written by Tony Mitton (Orchard Books), which has won three awards since being published. Guy lives in Brighton with his wife and three children.
