Written by Jonathan Hopkins.
See what happens at the quarry when the old bones of a dinosaur get dug up. It’s another day of hard work, fun and mischief for The Quarry Lorries.
When Bowser the truck teases his friend Tug the water draining tank about dinosaurs, he meant to scare Tug! However, when one of the other lorries makes a bony discovery in the quarry, the team decide to teach Bowser a lesson for scaring Tug!
Suitable for more grown-up little readers, or intrepid listeners at bedtime, “Up Popped a Dinosaur” gently teaches children not to scare other people with tall tales, or they may well get taught a little lesson! The lovely illustrations will keep little readers entertained whilst they listen to the story, and bigger readers will be able to help out with some of the smaller words. If you’re after independent reading books, this would be great for eager readers who are capable of putting a few sentences together and understanding longer words and dialogue.
