Brilliantly illustrated, this picture book includes real dinosaurs plus some fun facts at the end of the story to delight every dino-enthusiast. GigaNotoSaurus (the webzine, edited by LaShawn Wanak) publishes one longish fantasy or science fiction story monthly. The Gruffalo was one of the only books I’ve read where that isn’t the case, though unfortunately that level of attention wasn’t repeated in all the other books by Julia Donaldson. The story is very much based on Aesop Fable ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf,’ and has some funny, if not a little dark, turns, which are very quickly followed by a happy resolve. Now in danger of becoming a landlubber, Jonny lives in Wales with his wife, Jane, and their daughters, Daisy and Rosie.

My son loves the story and this book has been a favourite at bedtime for a few nights on the run now. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. Four little dinosaurs are playing outside, but their mothers have warned them to watch out for the Gigantosaurus.In this exciting title, eye-catching illustrations and engaging text combine to introduce the life and extinction of Giganotosaurus. The Pirates Next Door won the Waterstones Prize in 2012 and was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.

As a grown-up, it is enjoyable to read, there's a nice rhythm to the story and it's got enough humour and points of interaction to keep it intersting for the reader as well as the audience. It is a good contemporary version on the boy who cried wolf, but it lacks an ending that felt complete.At 2-and-a-half, this is probably a bit too long and involved for him, but he likes it enough that I'm sure it will get more reading as he gets older. If you read my review all the way to the end, you can check out an alternate ending to this book that I just thought of: Instead of Bonehead getting "eaten", his friends get taken by the Gigantosaurus because they didn't believe him to run away. rexes in the Astrosaurs books, in real life it’s believed that Tyrannosaurus rex had the edge in intelligence - though Giganotosaurus’s use of pack hunting behavior suggests that it wasn’t stupid either. on the edge of the jungle, where the herbivores grazed, four little dinosaurs spent their days playing in the Cretaceous sun, following tracks and having fun. There's also a fold out page and, to whet the appetites of knowledge seekers, there are snippets of information about the featured dinosaurs on the two final double spreads.

A wonderful surprise is the fantastic fold out in the middle of the book – children will be absolutely tickled! Speaking as a book designer, the only drawback for me is that the typography was a little less thought out than the illustrations, the story, and the cover.
