Product Description

Poor Basil Brontosaurus is having a tough time at playschool. The other dinosaurs are saying that he’s stupid because he has such a small brain! So Mum lets Basil into a little secret: brontosauruses have two brains, one in their heads and one in their backs. Basil is so excited that he goes back to school and starts throwing his weight around, telling all the other dinosaurs how clever he is! It’s not until a big, scary T-Rex arrives that he realises it’s much smarter not to get too big for your boots… Master storyteller Dick King-Smith delivers another winner with this magical read-alone story about a bragging little dinosaur.

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children’s books. Dick’s love of animals and farmyard life shines through in his stories. His gentle, accessible stories are ideal for young readers, blending humour and fantasy with useful lessons about life and the world.

Among his best-loved books is Babe, The Sheep Pig, which became a major film and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Dick died in January 2011, aged 88.

    This is a very funny story full of dinosaurs. Basil learns a lesson at Dinosaur School about not boasting to other people!
