Leisa at My Book Corner just posted a fab review for The Wondrous Dinosaurium by John Condon with illustrations by Steve Brown (along with a very funny story about a childhood cinema outing to see Jurassic Park!!):
‘The ideaâ€™s a simple one â€“ Danny wants a pet. But not just any petâ€¦ a giant Jurassic one. Luckily Mr Reeâ€™s the purveyor of prehistoric pets at the local Dinosaurium, wedged on the High Street between the light shop and the locksmith. Mr Ree soon sorts Danny out with a car squashingly big Diplodocus Longus, a drooly T-Rex, a flightly pterodon and the list goes on. None are quite right, but Danny and Mr Ree eventually get on the same page delivering a delightfully satisfying ending for little dino devotees.
Johnâ€™s packed loads into a wonderfully short text â€“ great suspense and fun dialogue. And Steveâ€™s illustrations are fantastically good fun â€“ with loads of humour for the kids.
Some dino obsessions never die. Happy reading!’
