We do like ourselves a good old dinosaur book here, so when Bloomsbury Publishing sent us a copy of this lovely new picture book, we suspected we’d like it….
Amelia has a dinosaur in her bathtub; a rather LARGE dinosaur. His name is Pierre, and he’s from France. Amelia and Pierre have lots of fun adventures together, like travelling to the moon, eating giant ice creams and dancing upside-down.
Magically imaginative and brilliantly different, There’s a Dinosaur in My Bathtub will captivate all children . . . And their parents, too!
This is such a fun and fantastical book, with fabulous illustrations. The whole idea that a child whispers to us about her dinosaur, Pierre, and creates this magical world, going on the very best of adventures with an imaginary friend is so sweet and lovely, and had Boo and I giggling. We talked about how great these outings would be, and what trips she would want to have if she had a Pierre, too. I love it when stories so easily open up conversations like that. This is a book for daydreaming with, laughing over, and definiutely one for dinosaur fans 🙂
