I’m a hungry dinosaur

Janeen Brian, illustrated by Ann James
Penguin Viking
ISBN: 9780670078103           RRP: $19.99

Just two years ago we were splashing around in the mud with this dinosaur. Now he has cleaned up his act and is having a go at cooking a chocolate cake. The dinosaur has as much success getting grubby with cake ingredients as he did with mud! Cake ingredients add flavour to the illustrations, with cocoa, flour, sprinkles and icing brushed around and outlined with magic pencil, which gives a rainbow-coloured line. Same recipe - same success. In fact Dinosaur has so much fun he decides to bake another cake. Oh, dear!
