Mungo and the Dinosaur Island

Publisher: Puffin

When Mungo borrows a library story book about his favourite topic - dinosaurs - he settles down at bedtime to read it. As he drifts off to sleep he dreams that he is part of the action, and his courage, with a little help from a variety of dinosaurs, saves everyone from the rascally dinosaur-hunting villain.

Presented partly as though it is a film, there is plenty of intriguing material for young readers to absorb, both about the book itself, the dinosaurs and the story. Action, humour and colour fill each engaging spread before the final, reassuring, bedtime scene.
