AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We might not be invited to birthday parties.
Balloons are just not for dinosaurs. We might not be allowed to play in the park. Or sunbathe on the beach. But I guess I could take her to the library. Dinosaurs are not book-eaters, after all.

'If the stairs are too steep, the bus too slow and the dog next door too big, then what you need is a dinosaur! This comprehensive wish-list of why one six-year-old boy thought a dinosaur would make his life easier covers everything in a child’s day- from getting out the door in the morning, to falling asleep at night.'(Publication summary)
