“Don’t ask me how they got here. One day everything was normal, the next, they were everywhere! Big, scary, meat-eating ones; giant, long-necked ones; noisy trumpeting ones; spiky armored ones and packs of dangerous little ones with sharp claws…”

In David West’s picture book, many types of dinosaurs have suddenly appeared on a modern city street. People and their pets are awestruck as they see a huge argentinosaurus loom over tall buildings and open its mouth to reveal jaws that could swallow a car in a single gulp. A brachiosaurus stretches up to eat the plants growing in the roof gardens on some of the city’s highest apartment buildings. A diplodocus, a gigantic raptor, an omeisaurus and a fierce triceratops cruise the streets while a hungry suchomimus looks for some tasty fish in the pond of the nearby park.

Dinosaur fans will be entranced by the amazing artwork in this book, which, using computer-generated artwork, places various types of dinosaurs in accurate proportion and size to the buildings and people around them.

The full-page illustrations are accompanied by easy-to-read dinosaur facts and a helpful pronunciation guide of dinosaur names for young readers.
