Praise for "Tyrannosaurus Drip": "With scansion firmly in hand, Donaldson pens a rhymed tale of dino-heroism perfectly complemented by Roberts's comical cartoon scenes of toothy carnivores and trumpet-mouthed vegetarians . . . T. Drip is definitely a dino worth hooting over."--"Kirkus Reviews""" "Brilliant fun from the creator of "The Gruffalo," Slightly older kids will love this, and you adults will probably enjoy it too."--supernanny.co.uk Praise for "The Gruffalo": "A modern classic."--The Observer

A lovely story which is especially suitable for 5-8 year olds.
And if you love the style of these illustrations, I throroughly recommend Little Red: A fizzingly good yarn which is a very different type of tale with equally appealing pictures by David Roberts.
Need a new copy now as the first one is worn out with love.
It is the story of a tiny sea snail who wants to travel the world and hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. They travel the world together and, when the whale gets into trouble, the snail manages to pay his fare by getting the help of some school children.
A truly lovely picture book story which parents and grandparents will enjoy reading as much as the children will enjoy hearing again and again.
Cynthia Marie Rizzo, author of "Julie and the Unicorn" and "Angela and the Princess"
The writing is good, and the rhymes are well constructed. There's one page where you'll get caught out as you turn the page, but it's great stuff.
Whether you are cheering for the predators or the herbivores, you'll find lots of cheer in this delightful package. It's only a shame that it isn't a longer book so that the fun could go on longer. Long live duckbill dinosaurs!
Her other books, Gruffalo's Child, Squash & a Squeeze, Charlie Cook, Giant, Room on a Broom, Monkey, Paintbrush & Sharing a Shell also get a lot of attention.
I'm not personally keen on things which seem to be over hyped, and don't particularly like the Gruffalo (awarded Pre-School award by The Book Trust) have to say, but I do like this book (Blue Peter Book Award: Best Illustrated Book to Read Aloud 2005)
It's unfortunately too old for my three year old - perhaps some parents could read it to this age group but really it's most suitable for the 5-8 age range having smallish writing etc. The pictures are very nice and the story/themes good, supporting "understanding of the world" etc. My child prefers "Sharing a Shell" and the funny "Room on a Broom" at her stage.
It is most likely a modern classic along with Donaldson's other titles.
Other good picture books for this age range are by Giles Andreae, Dahl, Lynley Dodd, Judith Kerr, Martin Waddell, Max Velthuijs, Debi Gliori & Emma Chichester-Clark etc and you can also search by age through the Book Trust recommendations list online.
