A Boy Wants A Dinosaur by Hiawyn Oram
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Alex is set on a dinosaur for a pet. So his grandfather took him to the Dino-Store to buy one, a Massospondylus. He called her Fred. But Fred ate far too much; her special hot steaming marsh in the bathroom was unhealthy; and when she goes to school the classroom makes her feel very sick. They have to go on a walk in the country - and now even Alex says, "This is going too far!" In the end, Alex is the first to agree when his grandfather suggests that his pet should actually be... a rabbit!
