Dirty Great Dinosaur

Publisher: Orchard Books

Review

Hal and his dog, Billy, are playing in the garden when a dirty great dinosaur barges in! He is hungry and threatens to eat Hal, then his mum, his dad and his dog.

Hal is brave and resourceful. After a chase, and with Billy’s help, he ties up the dinosaur with garden hose and reduces him to tears. He makes the dinosaur apologise for the mess he has made. The dinosaur is still hungry, so mum makes him dinner before he goes home. Mum and dad congratulate Hal and Billy for saving them from the dinosaur.

Infant classes will love the big, bright, pictures in this action-packed story about dealing with temper tantrums.
