We absolutely loved this book. It's the perfect first 'non-fiction' style book as it incorporates the facts on the dinosaurs with the fiction of Nibbles. Humour, fantastic illustrations, information and a story all in one. My little one is just three years old and I'd say she's at the youngest end of a suitable age bracket. Can't recommend it enough.

We absolutely love this book!

We were lucky enough to win a copy in the giveaway and both my son and I were thrilled with it.

It's a beautifully illustrated book and very different to most kids book - it's a book all about dinosaurs, but a naughty book eating monster called Nibbles has got into the book and is chomping through the pages!

 It's educational in that it includes facts about dinosaurs but it's also a lot of fun.  We both really enjoyed it.  It looks like it's the second book in the series and I think we will buy I the first.Highly recommended!

This book is brilliant! I've never come across a book that can combine facts (about dinosaurs) with a really engaging funny story, and it's really effective! I Iearnt lots about dinosaurs never mind my children! 

The illustrations are really fun and there's lots to look at in the pages, not least all the holes that have been nibbled through the pages. 

My children pick this book up all the time and I enjoy reading it to them. A fun colourful engaging story, I'm going to have to get the other book in this series too.

My daughter was so excited when this book arrived yesterday. She happily sat and looked at the pictures and made up her own story using the pictures. 

We read this for our bedtime story and it was a massive hit. I didn't doubt it would be after having read the other nibbles book. 

My daughter loved the interactive flaps and was saying things like wow as I read some of the facts about the dinosaurs in the story. She was telling nibbles to watch out whenever she thought he was in danger! 

I struggled to read/pronounce some of the dinosaur names! 

Excellent illustrations and kept my daughter entertained all the way. A very happy edition to our reading collection.

Reception Wizards read it themselves aged 4 to 5

I read this book to my Reception class and they absolutely loved it. It’s definitely a new favourite in our class. The children particularly enjoyed that the pages had actually been nibbled by Nibbles and loved spotting his whereabouts on each page. They giggled throughout and were truly engaged, leading to some super early writing opportunities. I would definitely recommend this book and would say it appeals to a range of age groups – even the grown-ups loved it.

Lovely book with lots of fun facts about dinosaurs. 

While learning about the dinosaurs there's also the extra activity of following the adventures of Nibbles (the book eating monster) as he travels through the dinosaur world. 

Nibbles actually nibbles his way through the book, chomping lots of holes in the pages, each showing a taster of what might be on the next page. 

The pictures are colourful and we also love finding surprises hidden behind the flaps in the book. 

It seems that the Diplodocus is Lucy's favourite dinosaur.... I think it's something to do with the mention of farts and poos !!!

We were lucky enough to win this book in the giveaway! It couldn't have been more perfect for my son, he is a dinosaur fanatic! His exact words were "this book is so clever, it's a story but has amazing dinosaur facts in it too". He has not put the book down since receiving it, I have read it to him, he has also been reading pages to himself, and he really loves the illustrations . It's a beautiful little book, definitely one that will be read time and time again. Thank you, from a very happy 6 year old!

Oh no! Nibbles has escaped again and this time he has found his way into an information book about dinosaurs. A story within a non- fiction text, this is the perfect way to introduce non-fiction to young children. Especially great if they're a dinosaur fan, but equally enjoyable if not, this book is hugely engaging. The interactivity of the flaps, nibbles holes and 'find Nibbles' is enhanced by the author directly addressing the reader, immediately drawing in a child in the hunt for the cheeky book monster. Hilarious, entertaining and a wonderful book to share, I cannot recommend Emma Yarlett's book enough.

This is a brilliant book! It's fun, humorous, factual and the illustrations are great. My almost 5 year old really enjoyed lifting the flaps to find nibbles and learning about dinosaurs. We are going to buy another book from the nibbles series as she enjoyed this one so much. Highly recommend for a super fun and factual read.

Nibbles is back in this second book in the series. This time Nibbles is munching through a dinosaur book only this time it is nobbles who gets munched but don't worry there is a happy ending for this little book muncher. This clever book encourages children to totally engage with it. My 10 month old along my four year old niece loved flipping through the pages looking for nibbled hiding behind the different flaps and hidden amongst the dinosaurs. They loved how the story ran through the pages with holes made by nibbles. Their older cousins (who usually sees books as a chore) asked if he could bring the book home to finish reading as he wanted to see if Nibbled got eaten. I would recommend this book to any child not just those interested in dinosaurs.

My class loved this book.

It was a bit of a challenge to read as a class book as there were lots of extra little bits to read, but in the book corner the children really enjoyed looking for Nibbles throughout the book. It's a book they have kept returning to and enjoyed talking about together. 

We loved the bright pictures and the fact that we learned about some new dinosaurs as we read. Now we need to read the original Nibbles story!
