An irresistible seaside romp from the prize-winning team behind the bestselling Who's in the Loo?

"One foggy, groggy morning
By the salty, splashy sea
I'm sure I saw a dinosaur
And I'm sure that he saw me."

But there's more to this story than meets the eye. Can there really be a dinosaur at Sandy Bottom End? Or is someone up to something...


The perfect pairing . . . A lovely story to read aloud.

Sally Morris, Daily Mail

Lively and fun rhyming tale...The illustrations are great (and the) colours are bright and enticing with large, clearly defined faces.

The Bookbag

The damp English chill is almost palpable in Reynolds's outdoor scenes, as is the nearly unstoppable momentum of a crowd's folly.

Publisher's Weekly

Great fun and brilliant to read aloud. -HIGHLIGHT OF THE SEASON

The Bookseller

Read aloud favourite from the bestselling team.

The Bookseller

A very funny story with vivid pictures.

Primary Times

A fine, amusing, carefully crafted book and all with those superb colours, wonderful.

The School Librarian

The rhyming text and brightly colored full-spread illustrations are definite attention grabbers and make for an entertaining read-aloud.

Starred Review, Library Media Connection, US

An ideal book for bedtime...Heavily rhythmical, wonderfully rhyming text, and vibrant, funny illustrations
