A fast- paced rhyming romp with the dinosaurs! Great fun. A fab choice for a shorter bedtime story (easily reads through twice), or also great for sharing aloud to fill a few unexpected minutes before lunch for example. We like to tap out a regular beat as we read or rhythmically stomp our dinosaur paws. Highly recommended

My son absolutely loves this book! We read it every night before bedtime. He loves the rhyme and the opposites of words. He loves to say that he is dinosaur strong and daddy is dinosaur weak! The illustrations are big, bold and bright! It is a fantastic book! There is also a poster at the back of the book which is a great bonus!

Charlie loves reading this one with me. We make it really fun by using different voices for each dinosaur. My 6 month old daughter loves listening and laughing at how silly we can get with each page. Highly recommend

My (just) 5 year old reads this with ease to me. He loves the big bright funny pictures of the different types of dinosaurs. He loves the rhyming opposite words, which makes it fun and easy to read. The pull out poster at the back was a lovely addition to the book. It would have been nice to have the dinosaur names in the book too as we didn't know them all.

This book is a great introduction to dinosaurs for little ones. It has some amazing illustrations of lots of different types of dinosaurs and tells you about their characteristics in a simple and fun rhyming story. We get to meet fierce, fast, long and short dinosaurs with some very bright and bold pictures. We really enjoyed this book and found it very entertaining.

This was a magic book for my son who is the biggest dinosaur lover.  The illustrations are colourful and bold making it a very engaging read.  The story matched the pictures of the dinosaurs actions in the book. It also had a poster of the story included in the back of the book which now looks great on my sons wall.

A definite favourite in our house, we like putting on voices and pretending to be the different dinosaurs, we especially like the pictures and we have tried to find other opposites for dinosaurs. I've also used it for a class assembly - we learned it by heart and then made pictures of our own dinosaurs and their opposites. A real classic!

We bought this book as part of a set with fold out poster and other activities. My son is obsessed with dinosaurs so he really enjoyed the pictures and story as he could read it himself. Definitely a must for any dinosaur fans.

I read this book to Leonard age 1. He loved looking at the bright colourful pictures and laughed when I did different voices for each dinosaur. By the second night he was roaring with me. He picked the book up later that day and roared, pretty impressive for a 1year old. Fantastic book. Thank you.

My daughter is obsessed with dinosaurs and loved this book. We love how simple it is, and the pictures are so big and clear. She loves spotting the little dinosaurs and saying ROOOOOOOOAR! We love that it included a poster too as we can put it in her room for her to look at. I think this will be perfect for children learning to read too as the words are not too complicated.

Leo really enjoyed this short story with its huge embossed T-Rex on the cover. It was great to read out loud with actions and had a lovely pull-out poster at the back, which featured dinosaurs from the book. Opposites were the main focus rather than having a storyline and the rhyming text made it flow really well. It's a good introduction to the new series of books that it has inspired.

This book did not grab my daughters attention at all and was quickly returned to the shelf.  A shame as it is a classic.
