What the critics say

The dino-tastic ultimate dinosaur picture book Dinosaur Roar! that has been thrilling children for 20 years
- The Guardian

It’s the 20th anniversary of Dinosaur Roar, the picture-book giant for small children which has been reissued for the occasion. “Dinosaur sweet, dinosaur grumpy, dinosaur spiky, dinosaur lumpy” — it still puts a lump in your throat. In a handful of words and 24 pages of fabulous drawings, the authors convey a crucial message to small kids and big ones: different folks can get along, and even eat tea together without fighting. They should have handed it out at the peace talks in Geneva. With its satisfying onomatopoeia and scope for silly voices, it’s one of my favourite books ever to read out loud
- The Times

This is a delightful book, and a firm favourite with pre-schoolers. The glorious illustrations encourage comment and observation, while the rhythm of the text soon has children chanting along...
- The Independent

A word book - but so much more. This wonderful book introduces the concepts of opposites and its use of rhyme and rhythm really helps children to develop into excited readers
- Booktrust

The infectious rhythm of the bold rhyming text will have every child roaring for more!
- Child Education

These prehistoric monsters are just perfect for the preschool crowds. A natural for story time
- School Library Journal

If you only put one book in their Christmas stocking, make it DINOSAUR ROAR!, an exquisitely illustrated and highly entertaining picture book.
- Good Housekeeping

The pictures and swingy short verses will make this a good read-aloud even for the very young
- Booklist

The ultimate dinosaur picture book.
- Green Parent

Who can resist the catchy rhyming text that gallops through this book? An exuberant book that will have pre-schoolers clamouring for you to read over and over again.
- Parents in Touch

Absolutely packed with child appeal! There are great bold and wondrous dinosaurs thundering through the pages of this book. Only two, but very expressive, words appear on each page making a vigorous and captivating adventure for young and old.
- Carousel
