Trouble at the Dinosaur Cafe
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 2:32 PM
There's real trouble in store down at the Dinosaur Cafe. Big bully Tyrannosaurus has dropped in for tea, and he's only got one thing on his mind. Meat. Mainly Dinosaur meat. Not great news for the rest of the peaceful veggie dinosaurs who just want to get on with their swamp pies, milkshakes and salads.
There's only one thing for it, call on Triceratops - the trouble-shooting tough guy who will wade into any situation and kick some serious dino butt!
Brian Moses / Garry Parsons take a 50s kitsch diner, give it a dino slant and weave a rhyming tale of giving a big noisy (and smelly) bully what for. The bold artwork is lovely, the text is entertaining and it made Charlotte giggle a lot. Thumbs up!
Charlotte's best bit: Flicking between the front inside picture, and the back inside picture in this book (Clean, dirty, clean, dirty!)
Daddy's favourite bit: The Dino Elvis picture on the diner wall. Uh huh huh!
