Synopsis

Dinosaurs in Our Street by David West

Welcome to a world where dinosaurs have suddenly appeared on our city streets. No one knows how they got here but now they are everywhere! Big scary, meat-eating ones like Tyrannosaurus Rex and Giganotosaurus; giant, long-necked ones like Diplodocus; noisy, trumpteting ones like Parasaurolophus; spiky armoured ones like Stegosaurus; and packs of dangerous little ones with sharp claws like Velociraptor (look out, they are stealing your football!). Fantastic, realistic graphic art combines with lively text to reveal the dinosaurs as they really might appear on our streets, accurately showing their size and colours, and helping young dinosaurs imagine what a real-life, face-to-face encounter with their favourite dinosaur might be like! A unique book that imagines what it would be like if dinosaurs lived on our streets today. Perfect for young dinosaur enthusiasts aged 7 and up, giving them the facts and stimulating their imaginations.

Reviews

Welcome to an imaginative world where dinosaurs have come back from extinction ... Fabulously realistic graphic art combines with lively text to reveal the dinosaurs as they really might appear on our streets, accurately showing their size and colours, and helping children really get to know these creatures. It's a fascinating approach, and informative too. Parents In Touch
