How To Look After Your Dinosaur Synopsis

Special delivery! It's your new pet! What would YOU do if a dinosaur turned up on your doorstep? Well, that's exactly what happens to the little boy in this brilliantly illustrated, witty picture book. He must learn exactly how to look after his dinosaur: what to feed it for breakfast, where to take it for walks and, most importantly of all, how exactly to deal with its dinosaur-sized poo! It turns out that looking after a pet dinosaur can be a tiny bit tricky . . . This is a very funny, tongue-in-cheek book for dinosaur lovers young and old, and perfect for fans of The Dinosaur that Pooped . . . series and Ten Little Dinosaurs. The wry and witty 'how-to' manual style is perfectly balanced by hilariously chaotic scenes around the house and in the park, as a little boy tries his best to care for his new dinosaur - from breakfast to bedtime! The gentle ending will help to settle children for a good night's sleep. Brilliant illustration by Blue Peter award-winning and Kate Greenaway-nominated illustrator, Jason Cockcroft, best known for his Harry Potter covers. He has illustrated over 40 books including a non-fiction series written by Chris Packham, Amazing Animals, and the Bad Mermaids series by Sibeal Pounder.
