The Wonderful World of Simon Abbott – The Land of the Dinosaurs

DID YOU KNOW: The longest near-complete dinosaur skeleton belongs to Diplodocus.  This maxi-monster was as long as a basketball court.

World of Dinos

Millions of years ago dinosaurs ruled the land.  Some were bloodthirsty hunters and some were peaceful plant-eaters – but all of them were mind-blowing marvels!


Meet the dinos that dine out on other dinos!  This bunch of terrifying dino-killers loved to guzzle gristle, munch meat and tear up tendons.  Rooaarr!


Most dinosaurs were herbivores (plant-eaters) that just loved to guzzle their greens.  These eating machines could devour a plant in no time at all.

Little and Large

Dinosaurs were the biggest land animals that ever lived.  The most ground-wobbling giants were the monster herbivores, but lots of dinos were dainty divas.

Dino Attack!

Slashing and gnashing their way through the animal kingdom, the bloodthirsty meat-eaters were expert hunters with some dastardly and daring tactics…

Dino Defence

With so many sharp teeth and claws hiding in bushes and around corners, the peaceful plant-eating dinosaurs needed some clever ways to stay safe and avoid becoming dinner.

Weird and Wonderful

Butting boneheads, big beautiful eyes, flashy crests and foul breath – the dino world had it all!

On Wings and by Fin

There were many non -dinosaur reptiles that lived 230-66 million years ago.  Some soared in the sky and dived for fish.  Others lived beneath the waves like real sea dragons!

End of the Dinosaurs

A huge chunk of space rock crashed into Earth 66 million years ago.  It was death from outer space and a total disaster for the dinosaurs!

    I am glad I had a nosey round your blog and found this post. This is not an author I have come across before but these books sound like they could be right up my son’s street. Currently he is really enjoying the Harry and the Dinosaurs series.
