Stockport Awards Shortlist for How to Grow a Dinosaur!!

Wheeeee!! How to Grow a Dinosaur has been shortlisted for the 2012 Stockport Children's Book Awards!!
I don't know which other books are shortlisted yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I find out.  This is my second nomination for this award.  Last year, Rhino? What Rhino? was shortlisted but pipped at the post by the brilliant book: My Mum has X-Ray Vision by Angela McAllister and Alex T. Smith.
Big thanks go to Ed Eaves for his amazing illustrations, which really bring this book to life! 


  1. Fantastic news, Caryl! Cheering very loudly...

  2. Well done!
    a brilliant book.
    Our son insists on us reading it to him every night since we picked it up last week.
    We hope there will be a follow up book to the final packet of seeds?.

  3. Hi Mark & Jules
    There IS a follow up to How to Grow a Dinosaur! It's called Welcome to Alien School and is published TODAY!!!!
