Dinosaur Beach by Frann Preston-Gannon is a very sweet illustrated storybook for younger children.
The narrative focuses on a family trip to the beach – from getting packed, climbing into the car, playing ‘first one to see’, splashing in the sea, eating a picnic, buying ice cream, making new friends, watching the sunset to travelling home – but there’s a twist.
While the mum, dad and son characters are human, a rather large collection of dinosaurs is also along for the ride, and they add a brilliant extra dimension to the story as well as a gentle dose of comedy.
If your kids like observational comedy, dinosaurs, and slightly silly stories then they will love this book.
Dinosaur Beach is published by anovabooks.com and is available in soft back for £5.99
