The Somethingosaur

Tony Mitton’s rhymes. Russell Ayto’s pics. And a dinosaur who needs a home… A real keeper. One look inside this picture book and your heart will melt. An egg cracks open one day and out steps a little thing – the Somethingosaur. Nobody knows quite what he is. Until he works it out, the little creature will remain just a cute little ‘something’. He hunts high and low for answers, meeting lots of different creatures. Some of them reject him, and others help him. But is the Somethingosaur really a dinosaur… or something even more exciting?

    He didn’t know what he was. That’s why they called him ‘Somethingosaur’!
