The runaway coat

Dinosaur Trouble Book 3

By Kyle Mewburn

Illustrated by Donovan Bixley

ISBN 9781775433682

Scholastic NZ

 

Young cave boy Arg is cold. I mean really cold. He is freezing, his teeth are chattering and his skin is turning blue. Unfortunately things get even worse for Arg when mum throws his coat away because it stinks. It stinks because it is full of vomit, although to be fair, her coat is full of maggots so both are pretty bad. Determined to find his coat Arg runs off in to the wilderness and straight in to danger. Lots of danger, including a spiky-tailed anklylosaur with his own problems.

New independent readers will love the short chapters and feel a growing sense of achievement as they whiz through the pages. Donovan Bixley’s illustrations are quirky and full of character, totally giving life to Arg and his Stone Age family. Author and illustrator are completely in tune with each other with this series of books and their other series, Dinosaur Rescue which is for older readers. This latest book as with the previous two in the series, offers lots of fun. It is Kyle Mewburn’s ability to combine a world of grossness and humour that captures young readers imagination and leaves them laughing out loud.     Do look out for this third book in the series coming out this November.
