The Bad Guys: Episode 7: Do-you-think-he-saurus?! by Aaron Blabey

The Bad Guys book 7, Scholastic, 2018. ISBN 9781760279493
(Age: 6+) Highly recommended. Do-you-think-he-saurus?! will need no promotion to fans of the Bad Guys as they time travel through space, landing on the exact spot they wanted, but at the wrong time - 65 million years in the past.
Readers will cheer as the Bad Guys face a fierce dinosaur while they try to repair their time machine and get back to earth in time to save it from the evil alien.
Even though this book follows on from The Bad Guys: Episode 6, new readers to the series will quickly catch onto the characters and the plot and they will be swept along laughing out loud at the antics of the dinosaur and the Bad Guys. Blabey also has a little fun looking at the qualities of leadership that will fascinate kids and the drawings of the characters are a joy to examine.
To add to the reader's enjoyment is a pilot episode, "The glamorous life of Dr Rupert Marmalade", at the back of the book and adults and kids alike will have a laugh at the take-off of reality shows and the huge ego of Dr Marmalade.
This is a series that will give any readers a lift as they laugh along with Blabey's fabulous sense of humour and hilarious drawings.
