All young dinosaurs are warned about the scary Gigantosaurus. So Bonehead volunteers to be the dino-kids lookout whenever they go into the jungle to play. Unfortunately, he is the original boy-dinosaur who cried wolf, or in this case, GIGANTOSAURUS! Finally, Bonehead’s friends refuse to believe his warnings and the Gigantosaurus really turns up! In a vertical gatefold surprise, it looks like Bonehead has got crunched – but in a hilarious reveal we discover this annoying little dinosaur is safe after all.

Publisher Review

An amusing rhyming story about crying wolf or in this case Gigantosaurus. Brilliantly illustrated, this picture book includes real dinosaurs plus some fun facts at the end of the story to delight every dino-enthusiast. -- Ros Collins * Mail and Surrey Advertiser / Aldershot News * ... as good as The Gruffalo but with Dinosaurs. The illustrations are readable, original, and very inviting to a three-year-old's imagination. There's also a clever fold out when the 'Gigantosaurus' finally appears. * Green Door * Duddle's prehistoric take on The Boy Who Cried Wolf is enormous fun. The rhyming story rollicks along and with their filmic quality, the digitally created illustrations seem to leap off the page. There's also a fold out page and, to whet the appetites of knowledge seekers, there are snippets of information about the featured dinosaurs on the two final double spreads. Dinosaur style, Duddle has definitely done himself proud. -- Jill Bennett * Red Reading Room * What a gorgeous gorgeous book...Told in rhyme, this is a great book to share with your dinosaur-loving children. Younger children will enjoy having this read to them, while the language used is more suitable for older children to read alone. The amount of detail in each illustration is fantastic. They are bright, clear and show so much. If you look carefully you can see hints of all sorts of dinosaur formations hiding in the images. And you also get to meet the dinosaurs in the book at the end. There are two pages of dino facts for kids to enjoy.What a great addition to your collection, whether it's because you are a dinosaur fan, you like a good read-aloud, or purely for the amazing illustrations. -- Sandi Faulconbridge * Reflections of a Crazy Library Lady *
