George and the Dinosaur

Illustrated by Sue Heap

A hilarious picture book about a little boy whose pet dinosaur has a bigger appetite than he bargained for!

George likes digging in his backyard. He finds all sorts of things, including a dinosaur egg! When it hatches, George thinks he has found the perfect pet, until the baby dinosaur starts eating. First, it’s only the contents of the refrigerator. Then, it’s everything in the living room. And THEN, the dinosaur eats George! Will the dinosaur spit George out and learn how to behave?
