Rhinosaur by Russell Julian


Rhinosaur by Russell Julian

Rhinosaur likes nothing more than an early morning CHAAaaarGE...until one day when he mistakenly charges head first into a pile of dustbins! With a bin lid stuck fast around his neck it's fair to say he bears more than a passing resemblance to a dinosaur, so it's hardly surprising when his jungle neighbours cart him off to Dinoland (a hastily constructed dinosaur theme park). What is strange, however, is how much Rhino seems to enjoy the limelight, despite supposedly being the shyest animal in the jungle. Soon the newly-named Rhinosaur stomps and struts his way to stardom...but can he keep his disguise a secret forever?

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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

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