Astrosaurs: The Forest of Evil by Steve Cole (Children's, 7 years +)

August 2011, Red Fox
144 pages, Paperback
Review copy

Themes: space, adventure, evil mastermind, poison, twisted nature, evil intentions, lots of high peril, unexpected ending. 

Noxia-4 is a farm-planet; a world of plants that feeds billions of hungry dinos. But when the harvest fails and the farmers are attacked, Teggs and the team investigate - and soon learn that Noxia-4's dark forests are home to a strange and deadly evil that could destroy them all. 

Nayuleska's thoughts
This is the scariest Astrosuars book I've ever read! All I thought of when I saw the plants was eeeep, because they reminded me of monster plants in the video game series Final Fantasy, or of Winx Club cartoon series because magical plants mostly attack Winx and their friends (although some are friendly). The Astrosaurs have a real problem on their hand - I didn't see the end coming. Definitely a 10/10 read. 

Make sure you check out Steve Cole's website for more information and him and his books.
