Review

"Who can resist the mix of dinosaurs and space?" (The Sunday Times)

"Steve Cole has captured the attention of dinosaur-loving children with this super series of books . . . Exciting and funny, this series is bound to be a hit with budding young readers" (South Wales Argus)

"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" (wordpool.co.uk)

Book Description

DINOSAURS . . . IN SPACE!

The first title in best-selling author Steve Cole's brilliantly funny, exciting ASTROSAURS series - perfect for children ready to start reading chapter books by themselves.

I specifically ordered this book based on the image shown as it states that free collectors cards are included but on arrival this was not the case. Amazon are giving me a refund. If you are not interested in the cards then you should be fine.

Format: Paperback
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!)

Bought this book for my eight year old son. He loves the story and has been pestering me to buy some more. The story features the trials and tribulations of the dinosour gang and features some great words and phrasing to stretch the free reader. Would highly recommend for active fun loving boys.

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.

I great book to get for kids I really enjoyed reading it. I think Steve Cole writes some brilliant books like the cows in action and astrosaurs. There all ways a happy ending. There short good books that don't take long to read which I find useful. The whole series is incredibly amazing. I say you should read all of them. 5.5stars
