Review quote

"The dino-tastic ultimate dinosaur picture book Dinosaur Roar! that has been thrilling children for 20 years" The Guardian "It's the 20th anniversary of Dinosaur Roar, the picture-book giant for small children which has been reissued for the occasion. "Dinosaur sweet, dinosaur grumpy, dinosaur spiky, dinosaur lumpy" - it still puts a lump in your throat. In a handful of words and 24 pages of fabulous drawings, the authors convey a crucial message to small kids and big ones: different folks can get along, and even eat tea together without fighting. They should have handed it out at the peace talks in Geneva. With its satisfying onomatopoeia and scope for silly voices, it's one of my favourite books ever to read out loud" -- Alex O'Connell The Times "This is a delightful book, and a firm favourite with pre-schoolers. The glorious illustrations encourage comment and observation, while the rhythm of the text soon has children chanting along..." The Independent "A word book - but so much more. This wonderful book introduces the concepts of opposites and its use of rhyme and rhythm really helps children to develop into excited readers" -- Wendy Cooling Booktrust "The infectious rhythm of the bold rhyming text will have every child roaring for more!"
