Ten tricky dinosaurs by Amanda Tarlau and Karen Mounsey-Smith

Scholastic Press, 2015. ISBN 9781742761336
(Age: Preschool - 8) Recommended. These ten, quirky dinosaurs are vivid and vibrant, and not VERY fearsome at all.
Excitement bubbles in this enchanting rhyming book. The little dinosaurs are all so high-spirited and energetic as they climb, swing, slide and do magic tricks.
As Mum calls 'dinner time', the tenth worn-out little dinosaur goes home.
I recommend this brilliantly illustrated book for children from about 8 years old, down to the very young.
