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.

"With black and white illustrations to break up the text, this funny, fast moving story should attract young readers, especially boys, and keep them turning the pages. Then, if they're really hooked, they've got the rest of the series to read too" (

This is the first book in Steve Cole's excellent 'Astrosaur' excellent series, which now totals 23 books. This book is the UK 2010 edition and has been reprinted with new cover artwork, but otherwise it's identical to the old cover version. There's still the nice book illustrations every few pages, and the 'free cards' in the front with pictures of the crew and so on that the kids can remove and collect. The books are aimed at 7 to 9 year olds, and once hooked at 9 kids will probably read them until about 12.

My son is dyslexic and isn't very good at reading, so I read these Astrosaurs books to him at bedtime. He really enjoyed them and so we bought all of the Astrosaurs series to encourage him to like books as much as his Playstation, TV and DVD's (that didn't work but the only book he ever read cover to cover himself was an Astrosaurs one). We are Dr Who, StarWars, Dinotopia, and Jimmy Neutron fans and you get the boys top favourite (dinosaurs) thrown in as well. The only problem with them is that Steve Cole can't write them quick enough - and the SciFi content of the stories is improving with each new book. To quote Amanda Craig, writing in the Times, these books are "the kind of inspired, hysterically silly fantasy that boys adore".

The series follows the space adventures of a troupe of vegetarian dinosaurs (they escaped the meteor hit 50 million years ago by leaving Earth in spaceships). Captain Teggs and his crew, Gypsy, Arx and Iggy are no ordinary dinosaurs - they are Astrosaurs! They fly through space in the Dinosaur Space Service starship, the DSS Sauropod, keeping the peace in the vegetarian sector of the Jurassic Quadrant. They also patrol the neutral VegMeat zone to defend against the inhabitants of the notorious Carnivore Sector.

...then get these books!!!!!

My son is a very reluctant reader (always has been) but these books have him asking to go to bed early to read them!!!

Funny, clever and exciting stories for ages 7+

(The illustrations arent great to be honest, but thats what imagination is for!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Teggs to the rescue! 11 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Moving on from Astrosaurs Academy and continuing the adventures with young Teggs my eight year old insisted these books were a birthday must have.
He now loves these.
The series satisfies a combination of collecting as well as consolidating early reading skills.
Each book is a stand alone read but also part of a series.
Steve Cole writes in a way that makes kids want to read more.
Can't give higher praise.
Next please.
