Book Description

1 May 2008 Astrosaurs Academy (Book 5)

Another hilarious, action-packed adventure from the Astro-nomically popular Steve Cole.

Young Teggs Stegosaur is a pupil at ASTROSAURS ACADEMY - where dinosaurs train to be ASTROSAURS. With his best friends Blink and Dutch beside him, amazing adventures are never far away!

Arriving at the academy, the new astro-cadets face their first mission - to camp out in a deserted space wilderness and bring back something exciting for show-and-tell. But the sneaky tricks of a rival team mean big trouble for Teggs, Blink and Dutch - especially when a T.rex ship crash-lands close by with a VERY hungry crew . . .

More 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, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successful Astrosaurs, Cows in Action and Astrosaurs Academy series.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent fun book; ) 9 May 2010
the first book in the astrosaurs academy series!

we found this second hand in a charity shop or second hand bookshop, gave it a try, and really enjoyed it-

i love the idea that the dinosaurs didn't die out,
when they were knew the extinction was possible due to the asteroid that is thought to have wiped dinosaurs out 64 million years ago,
they built space ships and went to live in space!

understandably the herbivores kept out the way of the carnivores, so vegetarian dinosuars try to live separate from the meat eaters who have a taste for vegetarians......

the DSS are heroes...defenders of the herbivores...and this book is Teggs, a young stegasaurus and others in training to be part of the DSS, with new friends Blink and Dutch, as well as other characters.......

their first mission is their destination danger.....

i'm not sure on the age range for this book, as i think it has the appeal for a variety of ages, from young kids who like dinosaurs to older kids that like dinosaurs, adventure, brave heroes and heroines....
also certain issues arising in the academy that are similar to kids (and adults!)lives.... just to take one example, the not being believed, but having the truth will out and shown to be telling the truth, was one, recognised as happened when i was a kid and an was the bit of pyschological/emotional bullying and standing up for friends in these situations - all done in a subtle way, but i noticed and liked it....

the books are a nice low price which i like, i'm not sure if this series are in the library, though there is an added incentive to buy the books due to the collector cards that are among the first pages that kids can cut out or keep in the book, with lots of facts about various characters (4 in each book)......

my son's already asking to read Steve Coles other books like 'Cows in Action'..... and i'm looking forward to reading them too......

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! 11 Sep 2008
Our 4 year old son is completely hooked on the Astrosaurs Academy books. We'd had enough of reading picture books to him and decided that it was time to move onto something with chapters... will we can't read them quick enough for him. He remembers the stories and asks that we go back and read specific chapters. There are just enough pictures to use to back up / discuss the story. I can see that when he starts reading himself these will soon end up dog-eared from being read so many times.
This morning he even said he'd had a dream about getting the next book (shame it's not out until February!)
