As read by Eddie Redmayne for CBeebies Christmas Day Bedtime Story

WINNER of the 'Best Preschool Book' - Made For Mums Awards 2018

A little girl dreams of having her very own pet. But what kind of animal would make the best companion? A mouse is too small; a cat is too ordinary; and a fish is too... wet! As she plays with her toy dinosaur, inspiration strikes. What about a real, live dinosaur? She could ride it to school. It would need lots of food to eat, a swimming pool to drink from, and a dino flap so it could come and go. At the end of a day spent busily imagining, the girl trudges up to bed with her little plastic dinosaur. As she falls asleep, the dinosaur from her daydreams stands in the garden with its head poking through the bedroom window, making her dreams come true.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Perfect for pre-school paleontologists! ... A joy to share any time of day' - Baby London
'A must-read for dino fans' - Angels & Urchins
'Truly celebrates the power of children's imagination and their perennial fascination with dinosaurs through cheeky wit and rhyme' - Early Years Childcarer
'Gabby Dawnay's rhyming text and Alex Barrow's simple yet evocative illustrations combine beautifully. The book encourages active participation from children' - Book Trust
'Gabby Dawnay's rhyming text scans perfectly, and is pleasingly complemented by Alex Barrow's simple, impactful illustrations ... It is a joy to be able to pick up a book about dinosaurs featuring a main character who is female, and yet whose gender is utterly irrelevant to the storyline' - Teach Early Years
