Ill. by Donovan Bixley. Scholastic New Zealand, 2017.
The great egg stink. ISBN 9781775433668
The lava melt shake. ISBN 9781775433675
A new series about dinosaurs that I am sure will be a hit with young boys. There is plenty of toilet humour and descriptions of bodily excretions. We meet Arg and his family and a wide array of dinosaurs. Poor Arg finds himself in a number of difficult circumstances, which ultimately lead to him narrowly escaping trouble with his parents. Each book is a story within itself - consequently they do not have to be read in order. The books are set out in chapters and will be popular with students moving into short novels. The text is reasonably large and accompanied by illustrations. They would fit into the 'Quick Read' section of the library.
