The Itchy-saurus The dino with an itch that can't be scratched

Written by Rosie Wellesley

The Itchy-saurus The dino with an itch that can't be scratched Synopsis

Something is stirring in the dinosaur jungle - it's Itchy-saurus. His itchy, scratchy skin is making him bad-tempered. Can Doc Bill (the Platypus) help Itchy to calm down - perhaps with some lovely soothing cream? Rosie Wellesley's latest book is a tale packed with jokes and fun (and dinosaurs), but it also addresses a serious issue. Although we do not know if dinosaurs had eczema, 20% of children do, and this book is perfect for reassuring them that they are not alone.

The Itchy-saurus The dino with an itch that can't be scratched Press Reviews

'Laden with charm... I don't think I've seen a medical condition, potentially debilitating to some children, included in a story in such a humour-filled way... this book is fantastic, fun and T-Rex-iffic' * Sharing the Shelf * 'Don't think this book is only for children who have a skin condition. The humorous storyline and textured illustrations means this will appeal to all young dinosaur fans' -- Library Girl and Book Boy * Book Review *
