an absolute treat … this book is serious fun
Dr Chloë Marshall, Professor of Psychology, Language and Education

Written by worldwide best-selling children’s author and writing coach, David Bedford.

‘David Bedford is encouraging children to play with words and ideas, to enjoy and be creative with language, to expand their vocabulary and find out what words can do, and to take risks (because not all their jokes will be funny, but hopefully some will be!). What’s my favourite dinosaur? It’s the Diplo-joke-us, of course!’
Dr Chloë Marshall, UCL Institute of Education, University College London

‘David Bedford uses many years of experience to encourage children to enjoy dinosaur jokes and also create their own ingenious puns. Jokes are a great way to combine fun, creativity and literacy!
Paeony Lewis, Children’s Author
