Synopsis

Dinosaur Disaster by Benedict Blathwayt

Fin, the dinosaur hero is back! But he's not alone ...the bullies are still hot on his tail! Luckily, when clever Fin finds the secret entrance to a hidden valley with its own volcanic spring, the bullies are too big to follow. And when the temperature drops and it suddenly starts to snow, the bullies discover they're in real danger ...But will Fin leave them out in the cold? Of course not! From safe inside the heated valley, kind-hearted Fin feeds those mean bullies every day until the weather changes. But do they say thank you? No! They chase him all the way home again - but clever Fin outwits them to the very end! Can readers spot Fin and his friends on the final spread as they hide from those dastardly dinos? This is a heart-warming tale about kindness and standing up to bullies, with a great 'look and find' final spread.

About the Author

Benedict Blathwayt

Benedict Blathwayt started as a painter working from his own studio at the age of seventeen, and held a number of successful exhibitions. Since then he has worked in the Hebrides as a dairyman (which accounts for his wonderful character, Bramble the cow and for the Scottish scenery in Little House by the Sea) and in Wales as a wildlife artist for Nature Conservancy. Now living on Exmoor, he has published over thirty children's books, the very successful Bramble books selling over a million copies in Sainsburys in the l990s. He was short-listed for the Smarties Book Award, (middle category) with Tangle and the Firesticks. He builds his picture book stories round farm animal heroes, Kip the sheep dog, Tig and Tag, the sheep, Bella the goose, Pebble the pony. He has also created board books featuring a tractor, a rally car, an aeroplane, a big truck and a ferry. More recently Hutchinson have published Ben`s Big Book of Cars which is proving immensely popular. Ben is planning more in this series.

Married to an artist, Ben Blathwayt lives in Somerset on the edge of Exmoor and has two sons.
