George and the Dinosaur by Felix Hayes


George and the Dinosaur by Felix Hayes

George likes digging. He finds some gems, a sword, a pirate's leg and, to top off the hoard, a dinosaur egg! When he cleans his treasure he finds that the gems are just stones, dirt and dust. The sword is a spoon all covered in rust. The leg is a root, cracked and dried, but the egg is an egg, with something inside. George thinks his pet is perfect - until the baby dinosaur starts eating everything in sight.
