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
