The Littlest Dinosaur
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books
When mother dinosaur’s last egg finally cracks open, out comes a minute dinosaur.
This Littlest Dinosaur doesn’t grow any bigger – and when he’s playing football he is in danger of being trodden on.
The place where he feels safest is up the hill, and it is from this vantage point that he spots a huge but sad-looking Diplodocus.
When the Stegosaurus family all get stuck whilst squelching in the mud, the Littlest Dinosaur bravely treks to get help from the huge Long Neck, who rescues them all.
The message to readers is that since the beginning of time there have been those who do not fit the norm, that everyone has value, and that individuals need each other. Foreman’s characteristic drawings render his jolly dinosaurs in a swampy green and blue landscape.
