Review quote

The words process up, down, around and across the pages in perfect harmony with the dinosaurs' dancing and prancing. There is a tremendous sense of movement in the illustrations, which seem to gyrate before your eyes * School Librarian * Hard-to-resist rhythm * Childrens Bookseller * A book to brighten the dullest day ... intensely coloured, exuberant illustrations combine with a jazzy rhythmic text to produce a book that demands to be real aloud * The Scotsman * A wonderfully rumbustious noisy poem * Northern Echo * A wonderfully bright and noisy book * Book Trusted News *
