"Packed with prehistoric pals, pandemonium and a smidgen of scatological silliness, this rhyming picture book ticks a LOT of boxes for toddlers"
February 2022 Debut of the Month
Told in glorious rhyme and blazing with colour and character, Doctorsaurus is a dream of a picture book for fun-loving, dino-loving toddlers (which must be just about all of them). Emi-Lou May has created a story that’s perfect for reading aloud - preferably in funny dinosaur voices - while Leire Martin’s illustrations dance with dynamism.
When a bunch of boundlessly energetic prehistoric pals get together to picnic and play, it’s to be expected that a few mishaps will take place. First up, Triceratops forgets to look where he’s going, crashes into a tree, and breaks his horn in three. Next Stegosaurus gets a splinter stuck in his pinkie, while T-Rex develops an allergic reaction. Saving the silliest for last, poor Brontosaurus feels big and bloated, and “just can’t do a poo!” Thankfully Doctorsaurus is on hand to help everyone back to health, with her solving of Brontosaurus’ problem having the added bonus of providing tea for fifty dancing dung beetles!
