Jonathan Stutzman’s second Tiny T. Rex tale is a dream of a picture book for dinosaur mad toddlers, with Jay Flack’s stylish, warm-hued illustrations a perfect partner for the heart-warming, empathetic sentiment of the story - how to make a friend feel better through a hug (even when you have teeny, tiny arms!). Tiny T. Rex faces something of an existential crisis when his poor friend Pointy is feeling sad and needs a hug to cheer him up. Alas, Tiny, observes, “I have tiny arms. It is very difficult to hug with tiny arms.” But, never one to give up, never one to let down a friend, Tiny T. Rex resolves to “try anyway. Pointy needs me”. After going to considerable lengths to improve his capacity to hug, Tiny is thrust back to Pointy and - though still small of arm - his vast heart provides his pal with the biggest hug EVER!

A world of prehistoric wonders awaits young readers in this excellent information book. Divided by continent it features maps of each followed by scenes depicting the area’s different dinosaur species in their natural habitats. There are notes on each dinosaur represented with detailed information on 30, from the really familiar – T Rex – to more recent discoveries such as the Gigantoraptor. The information is filled with memorable comparisons such as ‘steak-knife teeth’ and quirky visual jokes too: many of the big predators have got napkins round their necks and one is holding a knife and fork. Lucy Lethbridge’s illustrations capture the essence of the dinosaurs in bold, unfussy but arresting images and this will spark real and lasting interest in its subject. ~ Andrea Reece
With over 121 possible prehistoric creations, silly names and strange noises to make you giggle, this new Flip Flap book is perfect for preschoolers and ideal for dinosaur fans. With a hilarious rhyming text and brilliant illustrations from Axel Scheffler, simply flip the pages to create some seriously silly mixed-up dinosaurs. What do you get if you cross a mighty Tyrannosaurus rex with a fearsome Triceratops? It's a Tyrannotops, of course! And how about a giant Diplodocus with a soaring Pterodactyl? Why, that's a Diplodactyl!
This handsome, highly illustrated guide to dinosaurs demonstrates how much of our knowledge of prehistoric animals comes from the remains they left behind as fossils. On alternate double page spreads are illustrations of complete dinosaur skeletons, labelled with interesting pieces of information alongside longer text panels. There are colour illustrations too of the dinosaurs as they might have looked – much brighter and more colourful than we used to think. The book covers everything from early fish and trilobites to relatively recent creatures such as mammoths, on earth only 40,000 years ago, with particularly dramatic sections on early predators. An appendix includes a useful timeline and glossary. ~ Andrea Reece

Visually alive, original and information rich, this handsome book will fascinate budding young palaeontologists. It speaks directly to the reader, placing them in the heart of the action, ‘As you travel through the Triassic landscape you notice it’s dry and sandy …’, providing close up encounters with dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Readers travel on from the Triassic age through the Jurassic ages and finally into the Cretaceous period, and it’s an information-packed journey. The text explains clearly why dinosaurs ruled the earth for so long. The illustrations are eye-catching, the dinosaurs vivid, almost fluorescent, in red, green, yellow, pink and blues (after all, no-one knows what colour they were). Stunning to look at and fascinating reading. ~ Andrea Reece

Dinosaur roar, dinosaur squeak! This fabulous rhyming book of opposites is deservedly recognised as a classic.

One to be gobbled up with a munch, munch, scrunch!
Opinions on what dinosaurs looked like have changed a lot recently, and instead of imagining them as big lizards with muddy-brown or green scales, palaeontologists now think that they may have been brightly coloured, and that lots of them had feathers. A host of dinosaurs parade across the pages of this handsome information book, beautifully illustrated by Matt Sewell. Each picture is accompanied by paragraphs of text, full of interesting and often surprising information on these extraordinary creatures. Lovely to look at, and packed with facts, this will have huge appeal for dinosaur fans young and old.
