There are many different types of families. But none so unusual as this one - it includes a dinosaur!

It's not every day that a dinosaur takes up residence! It's lots of fun because Dinosaur loves to join in. He loves to bake and paint, he adores singing and skipping, and he thinks school is great. But dinosaurs are different. For one thing they are very big and sometimes very clumsy, so wherever Dinosaur goes chaos is sure to follow . . .

A warm and funny story about the most unconventional of friendships, from the author of international bestseller, Giraffes Can't Dance.
