My Review:

This is a sparkly, eye-catching book,
With bold illustrations that just make you want to look.
When you do, you'll find inside 
A huge dinosaur - but don't try to hide!

The brontosaurus has come and kidnapped Gran
He grabbed her quickly and then just ran!
But he's not going to get away,
Not if this young girl has anything to say.

This is a lovely story, told in rhyme
One that can be read and enjoyed time after time.
The kind of story that is great fun 
With a lovely message for everyone.

So if you'd like a lovely bedtime read to share
Come chase the brontosaurus if you dare!
The delightful story is one that children will find fun
A brilliant bed time read when their day is done.

My thanks to Bloomsbury for my copy of this book
I highly recommend you give it a look
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and am pleased to say
It's a five star review from me for it today!


I was in my Granny’s kitchen eating extra-special cake,
when the walls began to tremble and the roof began to SHAKE.
KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! Ring! Ring! Ring! Oh MY – a dino’s at the door.
And now it’s taken Granny . SOMEONE STOP THAT DINOSAUR!

Chase down the GRAN-NAPPING brontosaurus in this rollicking, rhyming, ROAR-some romp. Can you catch the naughty dinosaur and get back to Granny’s house before Mum comes home at six o’clock?

From Alex English and Ben Cort, the bestselling illustrator of Alien Loves Underpants, comes an irresistibly rib-tickling book that kids will want to read again and again . and AGAIN!
