LoveReading View on Downtown Dinosaurs: Dinosaur Olympics

Daft dinosaurs create delightfully madcap fun in this hilarious family saga with a difference. When gang warfare between Darwin the stegosaurus and T Rex Flint Beastwood breaks out, the exuberant mayor Boris comes up with a great plan. Why not hold a dinosaur Olympic games as a way of bringing peace? Will Boris’s plan work? It certainly sparks some very lively action amongst the dinosaurs…

Downtown Dinosaurs: Dinosaur Olympics Synopsis

Jeanne Willis’s madcap characters and story with Arthur Robins’ inspired illustrations are certain to delight everyone’s funny bone!

When the Stegosaurus family, Mr and Mrs Stigson and their son Darwin, throw a party for Uncle Loop’s 150th birthday, it is gate-crashed by Clint Beastwood, the gangster like T-Rex and his thuggish side kick Mr Cretaceous (a terrifying Dinoscuchus) and Terry O’Dactyl (a psychotic Pteranodon). War seems to be on the horizon for the carnivores and the herbivores as kidnaps and thefts follow. Boris, the Mayor, (a Triceratops) proposes Olympic Games to bring peace and stop the fighting. But can the dinosaurs settle their differences through sport or will it only make things worse?
