Praise for Dinosaur Disco

“It has dancing, tension and a wry humor that would sit well in a drama classroom. Dance on, dinos, dance on!”

Sue Osbourne, Magpies

“Kelly masterfully matches rhyme and rhythm with those long-winded dinosaur names [and] Parton's illustrations are perfect. Perfectly pitched to the target readership of Dino and dance loving 3-8 year olds. Fabulous fun to read aloud and twist your tongue around those tricky dinosaur names, with great potential to act out in the classroom – this book is a winner!”

Debra Tidball, Reading Time
