The Christmasaurus
Author: Tom Fletcher
What a FUN tastic Christmas Tale!! William Trundle is a lonely boy who longs for a friend that understands him, and his Christmas Mad Father. When A happy accident means that a Dinosaur from the North Pole ends up at his house on Christmas Eve, it changes everything for him. We loved the funny elves and their rhyming songs, and the story of how a prehistoric dinosaur ended up in the North Pole! a 5 Star book, easy reading, and fun for all!

Arlo, Mrs Ogg and the Dinosaur Zoo
Author: Alice Hemming
This is an absolutely hilarious book!! from the characters Daisy-may, Mitchell and Arlo, to Mrs Ogg, this book had my boys in stitches! they loved the bits of mischief the children got up to (chocolate milk in the hair, using poo to paint pictures)! this book really appealed to them and the illustrations really fit the story. We all thoroughly enjoyed this book - a must have for the book shelf!

Anty Hero
Author: Barry Hutchison Illustrator: Tom Percival
Li really took to this book - Ant is a a fly/insect boy trying to hide his real identity from Normal people and his normal friends - who have already realised he is far from it! Ant is a bit of a social outcast, and struggles to fit in.  this book is fun with a good story and a good moral - that you dont have to fit in to be accepted -just be yourself. Li found this reasonably easy to read at age 7 - struggled with a few of the bigger words but overall it was good. a fun book to read.
