Just a Delight!!,
This review is from: The Dirty Great Dinosaur (Paperback)
A friend bought this for my 3 year old 2 weeks ago, and I've been forced to read this every night ever since as my son is delighted with it. I didn't think it would be his thing as he finds dinosaurs a "little bit scary" and usually takes a while to come round to a new book, but both the text and illustrations have him entranced.
I think the appeal is the simplicity of the text, and for children who love to learn their favourite books off by heart this is ideal. Already my son is quoting lots of simple favourite lines, and even the title is loved as he finds it funny to dramatise the phrase "The Dirty Great Dinosaur".
The illustrations are fabulous, and there's so much happening in them it's great to encourage little ones to tell you what's happening in the story through the drawings.
All in all great verse & wonderful pictures combine to make a great book. I'm surpised it's not better known on here, but hopefully that will change in the future.
