Do you love dinosaurs? Course you do!

Who doesn't love dinosaurs? And I bet your children know a whole lot more about them than you do! Well I've just uploaded some fantabulous dino-tastic fun activities to accompany my book Knock Knock Dinosaur.  

They've been developed in partnership with the amazingly clever-tastic Zoe Toft from Playing by the Book and you can check them out here for absolutely FREE!



Get your hands on a copy of Knock Knock Dinosaur from your local book shop or library, or buy a signed copy from me here and then get busy with these great activities. They're educational too, but shh don't tell the kids!

Knock Knock Dinosaur is illustrated by Nick East. Isn't he amazing?! Watch out for more Knock Knock books coming soon.

FREE Activities to enhance your stories


Enjoying a book isn't just about reading a story.  Reading books together with your children can give them - and you - so much more.  I do a lot of work in schools and libraries with children, teachers and parents and design lots of activities to accompany my books that help kids get the most out of their reading experiences.  These might include writing stories using my characters, making up songs about them, or creating their own games based on the book's theme.

Many of these activities are available for you at home, free of charge.  Just visit my website and go to Activities and Downloads for a huge range of free downloadable creative fun and games that will enhance your reading experience with your child or children.
