Waterstones Says

Bedecked with simply stunning, richly atmospheric illustrations from Sarah Massini, Holly Hughes's rhyming marvel is a gently fantastical fable about the power of dreams and dinosaurs summoned by imagination.

A masterpiece of storytelling with evocative and stunning illustrations, destined to be read for years to come. The wishing stars burn bright tonight, the air is thick with dreams, And a deeply sleeping dinosaur is waking up, it seems . . . In a town by the seaside, Marianne is often seen foraging on the beach. But she isn't playing with children her own age. Instead Marianne is alone, and digging for dinosaur bones to build a special sort of companion. Then, one night, she goes to sleep wishing with all her heart that her dinosaur might come to life . . . A very rare and special book where the words and pictures take you on a magical journey far beyond the page.

From the boldly-illustrated front cover to the very end, this large paperback book looks and feels special. The full-page images are delightfully dreamy, in keeping with the tone of the poetry. [...] The author captures the essence of childhood imagination so perfectly, and I know this is a book we will return to again and again * Toddle About *
