What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Our feisty heroine Eliza Jane isn’t your average child. Instead of a cute, fluffy bunny, she has her heart firmly set on a prehistoric pet. Join Eliza Jane and her parents on a marvelous magical tour of their local dinosaur department store. From huge, stomping sauropods stretching their necks to a pair of loved-up Ankylosaurs called Maud and Frank, there are plenty of amazing dinosaurs for Eliza Jane to choose from. But this wild child is hatching a fantastic plan of her own. With the rich and vivid art of bestselling illustrator Richard Merritt and a witty rhyming text, this truly wild picture book will appeal to dino-loving, adventurous children everywhere. The final page features “selfies” of the dinosaurs mentioned in the text and a pronunciation guide.
