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.

Toto the Ninja Cat 3

Dermot O’Leary
Authors:
Dermot O’Leary

Toto is no ordinary cat, and she can't wait for you to join her on her THIRD ninja adventure! From one of the UK's best-loved broadcasters, purrfect for fans of The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets and Atticus Claw Breaks the Law. Toto, the amazing ninja cat, is back and cooler than ever! Toto is almost blind, but that doesn't stop her having brilliant adventures. Ideal for reading aloud or for children to curl up with and read alone, the story features brilliant black and white illustrations throughout. With gentle themes of friendship, inclusivity and winning in the face of adversity, this is a hilarious must-read for all animal-loving kids! Dermot says: 'The idea for Toto first came to me when my wife and I rescued two stray cats from an olive grove in Italy. One of them, Toto, has been blind from birth, but we quickly realised she had ninja-like reactions. Like a lot of cat owners (or cat servants), we like to imagine our pets having secret lives when we're out or asleep. So before I knew it I was writing about Toto and her brother Silver's nocturnal adventures around London. I really hope that children who pick it up enjoy reading the adventures of our little Italian underdog (cat).'Have you read Toto's other adventures: The Great Snake Escape and The Incredible Cheese Heist?
