Dino Diggers: Crane calamity by Rose Impey

cover image

Ill. by Chris Chatterton Bloomsbury, 2018. ISBN 9781408872468
The Dino Diggers have a new project - this time they are building a new house for Mr and Mrs Triceratops and all the little ceratops. But not not all of them are working hard - Ricky Raptor the apprentice is day-dreaming about being a proper Dino Digger driver and he very nearly lands in all sorts of trouble because he is not concentrating. Is he going to end up in the barrel of the cement mixer???
With its bright pictures and a cardboard model crane and brachiosaurus to build, this will appeal to young readers who like big machines and dinosaurs. Each dinosaur has its own personality so this series is great for encouraging young readers to recall what they already know and ponder on how the new story will evolve.
