Synopsis

The Dinosaur by Anna Milbourne

This is a wonderfully imaginative artist-led picture book taking young children on a gently informative and enjoyable journey into prehistoric times. Beginning with a little boy wondering what real dinosaurs were like, the story transports readers into the prehistoric age. The tale follows a loveable stegosaurus, as he hatches from his egg and grows up, encountering a fearsome predator and then some gentle 'giants of the Jurassic'. The story ends imagining what dinosaurs would look like if they roamed the streets today, with a lovely evocative image of dinosaurs in a street scene - great fun and a good talking point for young children. Memorable, gently lyrical text gives a narrative touch to information for young children. It is attractively illustrated with Mandy Field's colourful paintings.
