What If a Dinosaur: There's a Stegosaurus on the Stairs by Chris Jarvis, Alexandra Koken, Ruth Symons

Join Stegosaurus as he starts school, goes to a party and takes a nap. Along the way, discover just how big, slow and spiky he really was! Have you ever wondered how dinosaurs would cope if theywere alive today? What if they went to the dentist? What if they went to a birthday party? What if they came round for dinner? What if a dinosaur...? gives young readers a simple introduction to four dinosaur species: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Diplodocus, Stegosaurus and Triceratops. By imagining dinosaurs in modern-day scenarios, readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. For example, a Stegosaurus weighed as much as three cars - so just imagine how it would play on a seesaw! Engaging question and answer format will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain dinosaur facts.
