I've loved dinosaurs for as long as I cant mentally remember. Everything had to be about them, toys, films, books, documentaries, the list goes on. When I discovered I could draw, my obsession grew, drawing dino after dino, my room was filled with doodles, cutouts and prehistoric characters. Fast forward a few adult years and now I can share my skills and passion for these animals by putting together a book that isn't like all the rest.

AtoZasaurus - A Dino Guide with Teeth, is an A4 paperback book that is aimed at both kids who are just discovering dinosaurs for the first time, and bigger dino-geeks who already know way too much! Ages 6-65 million. Of course it's packed with some of your favourite dinosaurs, and a few you may not of heard of.

Follow Colonel McBlasterpants the 3rd, a time travelling robot, as he compiles the most accurate findings of prehistoric life in his handy A to Z guide.

The book will be A4 landscape with a 300gsm matte laminated cover that includes spot UV gloss detailing. Inside showcases 56 full colour 170gsm pages and will be perfect bound.
