Brrr! - Kes Gray, ill. by Nick east


From the bestselling author of the OI FROG AND FRIENDS series comes a roaringly funny new picture book, jam-packed with dinosaurs . . .

Brrr! The Ice Age is coming, the temperatures are dropping and the dinosaurs are frrreezing. Only one thing will keep them warm – woolly jumpers! But dinosaurs can’t knit, can they?

Find out what REALLY happened to the dinosaurs in an out-of-this-world adventure, featuring dinosaurs, knitting and a trip to outer space.

A fun look at what might have happened to the dinosaurs, in this fact-filled book from Hachette. I'm not sure the scenarios envisioned about the dinosaurs approach to the Ice Age are completely accurate, but the dinosaur names will please budding palaeontologists, and the selection of fun ideas about coping with the cold will cause much merriment, I'm sure! Who wouldn't like the idea of a jumper knitted by a dinosaur!?

Check out the trailer below for a flavour of the book and the illustrations from Kes Gray and Nick East:
