Children will love discovering a whole host of dinosaurs in this fun-filled picture book. Each spread features a short rhyming poem by the award-winning Tony Mitton, in which a different dinosaur introduces itself. Mixing humour with information, the poems include details about where each dinosaur lived, what it ate and how it got around. Accompanied by Lynne Chapman's amusing and colourful illustrations, and full of lift-the-flap surprises, this is the perfect book for pre-school palaeontologists!
