"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)

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.Read more ›
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!)
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.

My 8 year old son loves these books. I think once you've read one you've read them all, but if its gets him reading then that's good enough for me.Published 18 months ago by Sarahwoo
Great, the boy (my seven year old grandson) tells me; he is a fairly advanced reader and had no difficulty at all with it.Published on 29 Jan. 2015 by Al
