‘Dinosaur Christmas’

December 10, 2011

I’ve been working hard over the past year on a new picture book for Scholastic called Dinosaur Christmas, which wonders who who pulled Santa’s sleigh before he had reindeer. As the festive season is pretty much upon us, I thought it was about time to share some pictures from it:

The answer is dinosaurs…

… but they don’t turn out to be quite as efficient as the reindeer…

Dinosaur Christmas is currently only available through Scholastic’s school book clubs (US and international) but should hopefully be in the shops for Christmas 2013.

    Your illustrations are outstanding! I just bought a copy of your book “When a Dragon Moves In” and can’t wait to get a copy of this one . . . thank you for creating books that kids of all ages can enjoy – including this 41 year old kid-at-heart!
    Merry Christmas

    I really wish this was coming out this year! My son, whose 4, loves to get on here and look at the pictures. He’s very excited for us to be able to buy this book.

      Thanks Amanda. The book is available now through Scholastic Book Club in the US, but won’t be in bookshops for those without school access until next Christmas I think. I’m glad your son likes the idea of it though!
