9780007441266: The Somethingosaur. by Tony Mitton

An adorable little creature hatches from an egg and goes searching for his mother among the dinosaurs in this energetic, fun-filled picture book by award-winning picture book creators Tony Mitton and Russell Ayto. A unique take on the 'Where's My Mummy' scenario in which an egg crackles open and out steps a little creature - the Somethingosaur. He searches for his mum among the dinosaurs but she's nowhere to be found. But is the Somethingosaur really a dinosaur...or something even more exciting? And will he ever find his family and home? A warm, funny and jaunty rhyming text ,full of adventure, that's great to read aloud.

Review:

"Mitton's jaunty text begs to be read aloud" The Bookseller PRAISE FOR RUSSELL AYTO: 'The Cow That Laid an Egg... had me in stitches. More than just a silly story about a cow who thinks she's laid an egg, there's something deeper here about the idea of family, but it's so integral to the story that you don't feel as thought you've been hit over the head with the sledgehammer of worthiness.' The Bookseller "A Charming, comical tale." Starred Editor's Choice Junior PRAISE FOR TONY MITTON: Tony Mitton truly knows children, their interests, and their delight in rhythm, rhyme and word-play. No child will be able to resist this book. - Child Education
