This is the story of Roo, a little dinosaur who one day meets a woolly mammoth in a hot-air balloon. The balloon has a hole and gradually deflates, floating down to the ground and leaving the little mammoth stranded. Roo saves the day by giving the mammoth a piece of his precious comfort blanket (his moomie, as he calls it) which they use to patch the hole.
A story about kindness and sharing, with lovable characters created by the best-selling illustrator of the Lettice the Dancing Rabbit series, Mandy Stanley.

My son really sympthaised with Roo the dino in this story as he also has a special toy he's had since birth. He really enjoyed how the mammoth and dino became friends and the exchange of special things made them happy. We always love stories that gets us talking and engaging with each other.
