If you really want to spot a dinosaur, you have to be very observant. So concludes the little boy in this new picture books from award winner David Barrow as he sets off to go looking with his friend, Elephant, and his little dog. As they roam the city, by bus and underground train, visiting the museum and the skateboard park, they don’t see a single dinosaur, until they climb to the top of a (suspiciously green and scaly) hill for a better look and finally, there it is. Their journey will have been delicious fun for observant young readers, who will have spotted the dinosaurs on each page, hiding in plain sight. The follow up to Have You Seen Elephant?, this cleverly plays on the absurdity of the storyline while filling each page with extra details for readers to find – dog has his own adventure with a city pigeon for example. In warm, rich reds and greens, the city appears to be both welcoming and mysterious, exactly the kind of place that dinosaurs would be drawn to!
