Review quote

"The latest in a series of lovely, sturdy picture books for 4-8 year olds to take on trips with them. Dinosaur island is perfect for a small dino-fan, to take somewhere where they are likely to encounter fossils. The poetic prose contains great facts about dinosaurs, and the mix of photos and illustrations will interest children. The spotters' guide in the back is always a favourite with my nephew. Wonderful." -- Goodreads reviewer

"So many small children love dinosaurs (I've never quite understood why!) and while there are plenty of other books on the subject, this one takes a much more imaginative and fun approach to explaining their history than the usual directory-style guide. For one thing, it focuses on dinosaurs' continuing presence not only in the imaginations of small children but also as fossils, still around in the present day for them to find. The Dinosaur Island of the title is in fact the Isle of Wight, famous for its fossil-hunting grounds, and the book combines photographs of key sites around the island with appealing cartoons of two eager dinosaur-loving children, Jack and Boo. Lots of interesting facts are packed neatly into the children's conversation as they roam about the island. Rather sweetly, at the back of the book there is both a fossil spotting guide and a dinosaur spotting guide - as if you are equally likely to find dinosaurs still roaming about the island. A great book to give to children who are going on holiday to the Isle of Wight, whether or not they are already interested in dinosaurs - and if you give it to a child who's not been there, you'll soon have one clamouring to go! A lovely addition to the Jack and Boo series - I love the way these books encourage outdoor, creative play and imaginative games, in the fresh air and unspoiled countryside. More, please!" -- Debbie Young, author

"I've bought this for my nephew. Since he loves the other Jack and Boo books, I'm sure he'll love it. I particularly like the way that the children have grown up in the illustrations. As always, facts (this time about dinosaurs) are included in the text of the story about the siblings' day out on the beach. These are great sturdy books; highly recommended as gifts for children." -- A Baker, Amazon Review
