Come and get in the mood for this year’s Olympics and meet the Downtown Dinosaurs. They are the stars of a new series by award-winning Jeanne Willis, one of the funniest authors around, who has written more than 80 children’s books. The Dino-Olympics involve Darwin Stigson, a brave young Stegosaurus, as quick in his thinking as he is on his scooter; Flint Beastwood, the gangster-like T-Rex, never without his side-kicks Mr Cretaceous and Terry O-Dactyl; Dippy Egg, the Gallimimus; and Boris, the remarkably familiar-looking mayor. Plus, you will get to handle some real dinosaur bones, and even put your dinosaur questions to Flint Beastwood himself.
