Saurus St is just like any other street . . . except for the dinosaurs.

Saurus St is just like any other street . . . except for the dinosaurs.

When Jack wishes for his own Tyrannosaurus, he doesn't expect a real live one to turn up in the veggie patch. It’s pretty cool, but there's no way he can keep it. It’s far too big to hide in the shed, and it’s bound to eat one of the neighbours sooner or later.

With the help of local whizz kid Toby, Jack builds a time machine and sends the T-rex back to the dinosaur era. But when Toby, Jack and Charlie the dog get sent back to the Cretaceous period too, there's more than one troublesome Tyrannosaur to deal with.

Reviews

This cute and exuberant series for children 6+ years is high on fun and over-the-top adventure. Its premise of dinosaurs popping up on the street where you live has instant appeal for the age group, while its quirky mix of science, natural history and magic will maintain young readers’ interest throughout.

Bookseller + Publisher

This creative team works like Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake, the perfect humorous mix of the written and the visual.
