Some Dinosaurs Are Small

By Charlotte Voake

A book about opposites: big and small, fast and slow, carnivore and herbivore.

Some dinosaurs are small, and some dinosaurs are BIG. Some dinosaurs have tiny teeth for munching leaves, and some dinosaurs have pointy teeth for munching … OTHER dinosaurs! UH-OH. Some dinosaurs need to RUN! In pure pantomime spirit, children will want to cry out, “He’s behind you!” in this bright, bold and thrilling picture book from one of the most acclaimed contemporary children’s book makers, Charlotte Voake.

Customer reviews


'Charlotte Voake’s loose, inky line, earth colours and few well-chosen words conjure up dinosaurs and vegetation in a book that teaches opposites, involves children in the action, shows how to triumph over bullies and celebrates the powerful protection of mothers.' Watch Out For, The Sunday Times

'As usual, Voake's illustrations are simple but sublime; with just a few strokes of her brush she creates large, fearsome creatures which defy the size of the page, and a lush, otherworldly forest in which to set the scene.' The School Librarian
