Reader's Reviews


Julia Donaldson creates a funny and engaging rhyming book by developing interesting characters set in the age of the dinosaurs. The characters form 'goodies' and 'baddies' with the grisly and beasty Tyrannosaurus Rex's and the less ferocious, plant-eating Duckbill dinosaurs. The illustrations draw out the key characteristics of the core characters which add to the general humour of the book. A fantastic tale where the audience long for the unlikely hero to save the day!
