My three year old twin girls and I are huge fans of the Meg and Mog series of books. As a child in the 1970's this was one of my absolute favourite books. Now as a 'much' older (but not wiser) person I have the great joy of reading it to my little girls. The characters are a delight as always, as are the delightful illustrations. This book has it all, humour, colour but best of all dinosaurs! All children love dinosaurs, they did in the 70's and they do now. A great book, the best in a classic series.

My 3 year old son loves the Meg and Mog series of books and this is one of his absolute favourites. It follows Meg's spell to make them some eggs for supper but as usual things go a bit wrong and they're too hard to crack. My son then loves to see the dinosaurs hatch out of the eggs, particularly the Stegosaurus who eats all the cabbages! A fun book for young ones with lovely bright pictures.

These books are great.  Easy to read and lovely pictures.  Each page is brightly coloured and the stories are nice and short.  In this story the characters Meg, Mog and Owl are hungry and want eggs so Meg casts a spell and she produces 3 huge eggs.  They are unable to open them so go to bed hungry only to wake up to tapping and scratching.  When they come down stairs they find the eggs have started to hatch.  But Dinosaurs come out of them!  A great little story full of fun.

The Meg and Mog series are classic reads in every sense: I loved them as a child and I'm now getting the joy of seeing my own children enjoy them.

We find Meg, Mog and Owl very hungry; Meg casts a spell to make eggs but they are far too tough to break. They go to bed hungry - only to wake in the middle of the night to find dinosaurs hatching. They take care of a dinosaur each and trick a T-Rex who arrives to each them all. There is a lovely ending which makes my son laugh.

This is probably my favourite story - I know for certain it's my son's. It's a great, playful story with the ususal benefits of the Meg and Mog books: such as brilliant, bright drawings and simple prose and with sound effects and chances to be very over-the-top.

We love this - I highly recommend it!

My almost 4 year old twins absolutely love the Meg and Mog books! Santa brought them a Meg and Mog collection and they are currently their number one request at bedtime! 

This book has really tickled their fancies! They are all hungry so Meg makes a spell to produce eggs from them all to eat. Unfortunately the eggs are too tough for Meg, Mog and Owl to crack so they go to bed hungry. But they hear a noise in the night and out hatches.....dinosaurs!

A fun book with lovely vivid illustrations. The use of colour is delightful.

The Meg and Mog series are fantastic books for young children - bright pictures with lively and humorous text. This book is no exception - in the story Meg has several eggs that she hatches. But instead of birds, they hatch into dinosaurs! Great story that is fun and entertaining.

We are fans of the Meg and Mog series in our house even though some of them are a little bit odd! This is not one of the odd ones though. Meg creates a spell to create eggs but when they hatch there is an unexpected surprise - dinosaurs! The really bright, bold, solid colours of the Meg and Mog books makes them so appealing as well a lot of the pop art style graphics and captions.
