Dinosaurs lived long ago and grew to a massive size
But if they lived with us today, you wouldn’t believe your eyes.
Kids love books with different formats, and Colossal Creatures, with a flap to lift on every page, is sure to delight. The simple rhyming text by Nick Hughes, contrasts the ancient dinosaurs with the animals, people and buildings of today.
The highlight of the book is the brilliant illustrations of Mini Goss, who conistently produces work of this standard. Bold colours and lively detail are Goss’s specialty and in Colossal Creatures she makes excellent use of the lift the flap format.
Colossal Creatures, is equally appropriate for the home and educational context.
