Book Description

15 Jan 2004

A beautiful story about two lovely dinosaurs with a message as old as time itself – that being together is better than being apart… the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day

Featuring animals as well as distinctly animalistic humans, Edward Monkton books are highly collectable and stylish gift books – equally at home on a coffee table, in the bathroom, in quiet places or together places. They are perfect for giving to a loved one or for keeping for yourself.

A Lovely Love Story describes a special kind of friendship between a fierce Lovely Dinosaur and a Lovely Other Dinosaur, who melts the heart of her clever but tough admirer. The two friends realise they fit together and complement each other perfectly – and it's a reminder that our differences shouldn't be an obstacle to loving each other.

Each book in this new series is an original story, charmingly illustrated, and created especially for this brand-new series of gift books. Hand-lettered in the same style as the Edward Monkton cards by the Really Good company, the books are wonderfully packaged with the utmost style and attention to detail to make these hugely desirable objects and perfect gifts for special occasions.

These creations prove there is a universal and enduring audience for tales that inspire and touch hearts. Their philosophy is to heal, unite, amuse and delight in equal measures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely story full stop! 13 Mar 2004
Format:Hardcover
This story does not only warm your inner most squishy bits, but its also very funny. And it's about dinosaurs! What more do you need in a book?!
But seriously, Edward Monkton is a very intelligent guy: his illustrations are superb, his text is inspirational and VERY true (the lady dinosaur likes to buy nice things) - but not in a bad day!
I recommend this book to ANYONE - I don't know anyone that didn't 'awww' at it.
Buy it. Now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, funny and uplifting! 28 Nov 2011
By Ali
Format:Hardcover
My boyfriend has a running joke of branding me a "little t-rex" so I always thought the dinosaurs love story would be a cute little gift. I bought this for him after an argument; as a reminder that although we sometimes have our differences (he is overly fond of things and I am uncommonly keen on shopping!) at the end of the day aslong as we have our health, each other and the sun above us we are doing just great!
I would definitely recommend this if you want something sweet for a loved one, it will absolutely not break the bank and is a lovely, funny story with an important message at the centre of it!
