Albie is a normal little boy who has extraordinary adventures. When he helps his mum in the garden by planting some seeds, he can't quite believe his eyes the next morning. The garden has grown beyond all belief and these are not just any old plants - oh, no - Albie's seeds have grown into great big jurassic jungle! He rushes outside to discover what else has grown - a fantastic mix of real live DINOSAURS! A colourful, funny follow-up to Supermarket Zoo .

This is currently Leo's favourite bedtime story and he wants to read it every night! 
He loves that he can read and repeat the words that are in big bold letters. He loves the detailed and colourful illustrations which he can spot lots of things in. He loves the sense of adventure and also feeling the he has to escape the dinosaurs. He loves naming the different dinosaurs. 
We have several of the books starring Albie and they are all firm favourites!

This is a great fun story, we have a few of these books now. This one didn't dissapoint. A story about a boy who plants some seeds, wakes up and he's got a jungle in his garden. He gets upto a fun adventure that my little boy loved.

A really fast paced and enjoyable read. It is written in the 1st person, which makes it quite unusual but my children like it (Albie does talk exactly like a 5 year old would!). We especially like the ending as it gives a hint about Albie's next adventure. If you like dinosaurs, gardening or even just a fun read, this is a great book to choose.

This bright, fun book is based on Albie who reluctantly helps his mummy with some gardening. Who would have known the planting of a vegetable patch would lead to a dinosaur gathering in your own garden! Different dinosaurs are included in the story and what a roaring adventure Albie has. He finds himself running from dinosaurs, eating jelly beans growing from trees and landing in a nest of baby pterodactyls. This is a colourful, exciting read.
