Terri, Tyrone, Ricky, Bruno and Stacey are the best diggers in Dino-town but things do not always go right.

They are building a car factory for a rather grumpy Mr Ali O’Saurus who can’t wait till the next Ice Age to get the foundations laid. Haste makes for error and a water pipe is burst. Calamity? Not for the Dino Diggers they sort it out fast and the job is well done.

Simple story but with a strong message of working hard, sorting out your problems and doing the best you can.

The illustrations are cool. Dinosaurs driving bulldozers, trucks and diggers with a smile on their faces. Lots of boy appeal for reluctant readers and as part of a series leads the reader to further books about the same characters.

In the back is a kit set to make up a Dino Digger and reference to a web page to help the reader with the construction. A practical picture book for early primary readers.
