Great counting story book with rhymic sentences. 
The story is about a little boy who loves dinosaurs  and his encounter with ten different real life dinosaurs . They turn up at his home unannounced and start to wreck the house when he is on his own. 
My daughters love reading this story themselves and find it interesting to know the different dinosaurs names.
A fantastic counting book with bright and colorful dinosaurs pictures.

Sophie loves dinosaurs, she saw the book and got excited straight away she loved the roaring stomping noises we made along this story. It's laid out a bit like a cartoon comic, very modern and interesting to little ones. She loves it, pointing everything out in each page. Great fun bedtime book to read together.

Absolutely LOVE! This book has everything that both I & my little one adore - dinosaurs, rhymes AND humour! Definitely put a smile on my face & my little one enjoyed the whole thing. Gorgeous illustrations that completely entice you in. Educational, funny, bright, flows so well & encourages the use of children's imagination. Will definitely be one book that we read time & time again!

Millar absolutely loved this book. He got really into the story, stomping, roaring and copying the counting. He was even acting shocked and surprised when the dinosaurs knocked things over and when mum was coming home. The story started off with one dinosaur turning up at a little boys house then there ended up being 10, which you count up to in the story. All the whole it was a great book (although mum struggled to pronounce some of the dinosaurs names

This is a very charming book about a little boy who is home alone when he hears a knock on the door. He goes to investigate and finds a massive t-rex on his doorstep! 

This book reminded me a lot of The Cat In The Hat. Great rhyming text, fun illustrations, naughty visitors turning up when mum is out of the house and a huge rush to tidy up the mess before mum sees it! 

My four year old twins love the bright illustrations in this book and enjoy counting the dinosaurs. Highly recommended.

My little boy picked this book himself and he loves it, the illustrations are great too. A nice rhyming story about a boy who's new toy dinosaurs arrive, but they are real and they make a right mess of the house. Can they clean up in time before mum comes home. A fun book that we would recommend.

A lovely, rhyming counting story about a succession of dinosaurs coming to play. All because Mum ordered actual size instead of toys by mistake! The dinosaurs jump on beds, break vases and splash in the bath, but how are hurry going to tidy up when Mum will be back at any minute?

We enjoyed reading this story together - it’s a nice, gentle (but fun!) read that’s good for a quick bedtime wind down.

My four year old twin girls really enjoyed this fun, colourful book. The story very funny and the dinosaurs mischief had my girls in fits of laughter. The illustrations are lovely, engaging and lively. The only complaint I have is that the young boy is at home all alone, I realise that they story wouldn't work if the Mother was there but it still bothers me.

Knock Knock Dinosaur is a fast paced rhyming adventure with loads to spot and dinosaurs to name and count. There are dinosaurs with knickers on their heads, dinos skateboarding in the hall and dinos bouncing on the bed, all causing chaos through the house. Young children will love the dinosaurs getting up to mischief and older children will appreciate the humour throughout. Caryl Hart's rhyming text is glorious as always. The illustrations are full of life and comedy - we particularly enjoyed the T-Rex doubling up as a dustpan during the big clean up!
With loads to look at and lots of laughs, this will be a sure fire hit with Early Years children.
