In dining halls of long ago

When dinosaurs sat down to dine,

Did prehistoric dinner-ladies

Keep them all in line?

This is a funny and brilliant debut collection from the author of the bestselling Stinkbomb and Ketchup-Face books.

"One of the very best authors... for both schools and festival events"

-- Theresa Lowe * Glasgow's West End Festival *

"With Dougherty's inventive use of language, and with each poem different enough to keep a young reader interested, there is plenty here to capture a child's imagination. And Tom Morgan-Jones' cartoon-like illustrations are fun too."

* IBBY Link *

"Packed with a variety of very engaging poems."

* Books for Keeps *

"A brilliant debut collection of laugh out loud poems, a great introduction to poetry for all children."

* Armadillo *

"Good on you, John Dougherty. If you want to turn children on to poetry, then grab a copy of this and share it; buy a copy or more and give it; which ever - JUST DO IT!"

* Red Reading Hub *

"A funny and brilliant debut collection from the author of the bestsellingStinkbomb and Ketchup-Face series."

* FanstasticFiction *

"It took me a long time to review this book - because once I'd read all the poems, I had to go back and read them again. And I think that is what will happen to every reader."
