Product description

Poor Basil Brontosaurus is having a tough time at playschool. The other dinosaurs are saying that he’s stupid because he has such a small brain! So mum lets Basil into a little secret: brontosauruses have two brains, one in their heads and one in their backs. Basil is so excited that he goes back to school and starts throwing his weight around! It’s not until a big, scary T-Rex arrives that he realises it’s much smarter not to get too big for your boots… Master storyteller Dick King-Smith delivers another winner with this magical read-alone story about a bragging little dinosaur.

    This is a very funny story full of dinosaurs. Basil learns a lesson at Dinosaur School about not boasting to other people!
