All young dinosaurs are warned about the scary Gigantosaurus. So Bonehead
volunteers to be the dino-kids lookout whenever they go into the jungle to play.
Unfortunately, he is the original boy-dinosaur who cried wolf, or in this case,
GIGANTOSAURUS! Finally, Bonehead's friends refuse to believe his warnings
and the Gigantosaurus really turns up! In a vertical gatefold surprise, it looks like
Bonehead has got crunched - but in a hilarious reveal we discover this annoying
little dinosaur is safe after all.

5 stars
A good book for dinosaur fans with fact pages about the dinosaurs at the back of the book. Tells you bit about each dinosaur mentioned in the book.

Quite an exciting book which kept Ewan interested with bold words which helped him practice is expressions when reading it.

I read this book to my 3 sons, ages range from 2 to 9 and they all throughly enjoyed it. It’s a well illustrated book showing a variety of different dinosaurs with a great storyline. Would highly recommend to any dinosaur fans.

Four young dinosaurs are warned to be careful if the Gigantosaurus by their mothers as they go off to play. One offers to keep lookout. But - will his friends continue to believe him after he 'tests' their ability to run away with a few fake warnings? The story is well paces with some repetative sections that make it quick for children to join in with the words. The book also has two pages of facts about dinosaurs at the end. This is a great book for any dinosaur fans.

I really like this book. It's about a dinosaur who keeps playing wolf about tyrannosaurs rex coming. Then he finally does and the other dinosaurs think he's gone! The dinosaurs are so cute and I like the way the story flows. My little ones enjoy it but I think I like it more.

A 'boy who cried wolf' story, retold with dinosaurs!  An irritating little dinosaur keeps making the other little dinosaurs hide in fear by telling them Gigantosaurus is coming, only to end up in a sticky situation when Gigantosaurus really does appear! The rhyming text is great and there is a good use of noisy words like CRUNCH that are great for little ones.  The story really nicely incorporates the names of dinosaurs and what each type looks like, so there is a bit of hidden learning included too, although the dinosaur facts at the end of the story were a bit dry I thought they could have been made a bit more exciting than they did.  We liked the book but felt it could have been a bit better as the characters weren't warm enough for you to engage with, the story a bit dull and the illustrations weren't our sort of thing.
