Another tale of the three funnybones skeletons. The children were keen to read more adventures after reading the original and found this dinosaur themed one very amusing.

These are brilliant stories making ‘spooky’ fun for younger children!
The illustrations are funny for most age groups and the story itself is easy to read through.
Both of my children like hearing me read this to them.
Perfect for Halloween reading but fun at anytime - highly recommended!

We borrowed this book from the library as our 5 year old absolutely loved Funnybones by the same author, but sadly this book did not hold the attention or raise the excitement anywhere near the joy of Funnybones.

This is another book from the Funnybones series where the skeletons are dreaming about being chased by dinosaurs. Chaos ensues when their dreams collide.
My son especially is a big fan of Funnybones; we do keep returning to this book because it includes skeletons and dinosaurs but it’s not one of the best of the series. The story is a bit strange although it does seem to keep my son amused! My daughter isn’t as interested and her attention wanders quickly.
The illustrations are superb - as always.

This is a very odd story about skeletons dreaming about being chased by dinosaurs and how they get rescued. Neither myself or my son particularly liked this story although the illustrations are very good.
