Ginger and the Vegesaurs: Dinner Time!

Ginger and the Vegesaurs: Dinner Time! (Pan Macmillan) ISBN 9781761262296

This is a larger than usual board book aimed at children 3+ years old. It is a favourite episode from the heart-warming and hit ABC pre-school television series. In this book, the baby Pea-Rexes are hungry and searching for some spicy Chillipede snacks. They usually hunt in pods of Pea-Rexes, but this time Ginger the Tricarrotops is with them. There’s only one problem: Ginger is very, very noisy!

On their quest for food, the Pea-Rexes come across two evil Bananaraptors who’ve been sleeping nearby.  Then they find some Chillipede tunnels where they munch and crunch on their favourite snacks. Ginger, however, has such a spicy Chillipede that he cries out loud. His cries echo through Vegesaur Valley, waking up the two sleepy Bananaraptors. Suddenly, the Bananaraptors are right behind her. Fortunately, the Pea-Rexes know what to do: they challenge the Bananaraptors to catch them. But then they make the two dizzy but leading them around and around the Chillipede’s home. The Pea-Rexes chase the spicy Chillipedes out of their tunnels into the mouths of the Bananaraptors’ mouths.

Like the other books in the series, this one has a theme of friendship, with this one about friends helping one another to solve problems.

The book is brightly coloured with computer-generated illustrations.
