Captain Teggs is no ordinary dinosaur – he’s an astrosaur! On the incredible spaceship DSS Sauropod, along with his faithful crew, Gypsy, Arx and Iggy, Teggs rights wrongs, fights evil and eats a lot of grass! The Astrosaurs are on another mission when they almost crash into a deserted space station. It turns out to be a dinosaur prison that has been hit by a meteor and abandoned.

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 for young readers 4 Jan 2006
All of the books in the Astrosaurs series are fantastic for young readers. My son and I stumbled on these books just after book 3 was published and have eagerly awaited each release since! Even the most reluctant of children will be happy to sit and listen to the adventures of the space going dinosaurs. As a parent and a childminder, I have found that the chapters are just long enough to hold a child's attention and each one ends with a cliff hanger. The language is accessible but the characters complex and believeable. These books are really well written, posing interesting and challenging stories in an easy to read format.

Great book to get boys reading. Fun, toilet talk, ridiculous plot lines, how can any child not snort the milk out of their nose?

3.0 out of 5 stars the jury is still out on this one. 23 Sep 2013

I bought this as my son is going to have the opportunity to meet it's author next month. i have tried to read it to him a couple of times but he doesn't seem too bothered despite the characters having fun names and of course being dinosaurs! maybe i should have brought the first book in the series instead of the title i thought would be fun. hopefully he will change his mind soon as thought it would be a good talking point when he meets Steve Cole..

This is not the best Astrosaur book because it is awfully confusing in parts. When Steve Cole says 'Teggs', does he mean Teggs in the form of a fierce little carnivore, or does he mean Dasta in the form of the daring Stegosaurus? Recommended to people who can understand the impossible to understand! Good but not brilliant. (Kit, aged 8)
