The Dinosaur’s Packed Lunch

Publisher: Corgi Pups

Review

Dinah is having a bad day – nothing seems to be going right: so far she’s made her Dad cross and argued with her best friend. Even a class trip to the museum doesn’t cheer Dinah up, it just makes her feel sad that unlike her classmates, she doesn’t have a Mum to make her a delicious packed lunch.

However, when a disconsolate Dinah wanders into the museum’s dinosaur room, her day is transformed by an encounter with a friendly iguanodon who presents her with a bottle of magical dinosaur juice...

This simply-written book is aimed at children who are learning to read and is enlivened by Nick Sharratt’s characteristically humorous illustrations. This may well be the first of many Jacqueline Wilson books read by children as they embark upon their reading journey.
