Bonehead, Tiny, Fin and Bill head out to play, when Bonehead (and there's a reason for his moniker) decides to have a bit of 'fun' by scaring the living daylights out of his friends.
Climbing to a high point, he proceeds to announce the arrival of a variety of menacing monsters. 'Run! Hide! It's gigantosaurus!' he yells, as a line-up of harmless dinos stomp into view--a triceratops, a diplodocus, a stegosaurus--all after nothing more than a leafy jungle salad.
Like the dino that cried wolf, Bonehead milks the hilarity one too many times and ends up in a rather compromising position, as the boy who cries wolf invariably does.
Strikingly beautiful, dynamic and funny illustrations round out a galloping rhyming tale that would make for wonderful out-loud reading.
Jonny Duddle, you've done it again.
