Gigantosaurus by Jonny Duddle Children's, Picture book, 10/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

September 2014, Templar, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Content: lots of humour, some danger,

Summary from Templar
All young dinosaurs are warned about the scary Gigantosaurus. So Bonehead volunteers to be the dino-kids lookout. Unfortunately, he is the original boy-dinosaur who cried wolf, or in this case, GIGANTOSAURUS! Finally, Bonehead's friends refuse to believe his warnings and the Gigantosaurus really turns up!

Nayu's thoughts
This is a hilarious dinosaur version of the boy who cried wolf. I found the illustrations a teensy bit scary, hence why it didn't quite get full marks, but I chuckled away as time and time again the dino children got tricked, until the time when they didn't, and very interesting things happened! Story is fab, and the illustrations are highly detailed, providing heaps to look at on every page. 

Find out more on Jonny's website.

Suggested read 
No dinosaurs, and no wolves, but a hilarious read can be found in Rory and the Monster Sitter by Rosie Reeve (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)
