This story is set sixty-five million years ago in the times of the dinosaurs.
A small egg suddenly cracks and a tiny spinosaurus comes out of it, but there
are still three other eggs to hatch. His is named Spiny and he is hungry and
curious about his surroundings. Father and Mother Spinosaurus go out in
search of food and leave him in the care of Igu, a friendly iguanodon dinosaur.
However, soon Spiny gets lost and is caught by the dangerous TyRoar who does
not have his best interests at heart! Luckily, harmony is restored when the courageous
Igu rescues the tiny spinosaurus from TyRoar’s big claws. This is the ideal
‘Easy to Read’ story for all those dinosaur fans and particularly boys.
