About the Author:

Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, the voice of a Dalek and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–It turns out that dinosaurs, despite their itty-bitty brains, weren't so stupid after all. They managed to escape the Earth in spaceships long before the meteors hit, and now travel among the stars of the Jurassic Quadrant, exploring new worlds, fighting evil, and generally enacting every space-opera cliché ever invented. In book one, readers are introduced to the crew of the DSS Sauropod. Their mission: to bring some of the top Vegetarian Sector athletes to the Great Dinosaur Games. However, the evil meat-eating velociraptors, led by the noxious General Loki, kidnap the two stegoceras athletes who are favored to the win the Head-Butting competition. Captain Teggs and his crew easily rescue the stegoceras–too easily, they soon realize. General Loki has an even more nefarious plot up his sleeve. Will the crew of the Sauropod figure this out in time and stop the kindly vegetarian dinosaurs from being destroyed? Of course they will. Dinosaurs and spaceships that run on dinosaur dung–what's not to love? Okay, the fact that all the meat-eaters are bad and all the vegetarians are good is a little problematic. But the goofy line drawings, fast-paced plot, and general silliness should entice more than a few reluctant readers.–Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
