5.0 out of 5 stars A plot that has everything 14 July 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent: it has a lighthouse, a hot air balloon, a volcano and dinosaurs plus two strong child protagonists. As well as this, the illustrations are beautiful. My three year old loves this book and I think older children would enjoy it too.
