Joe and the Dragonosaurus

Berlie Doherty

Average rating

4 out 5

Charming countryside tale about the bond between children and animals, perfect for younger fans of Michael Morpurgo. High quality cream paper and a special easy to read font ensure a smooth read for all.


Joe didn’t have a pet and was very upset. He decided to make one up and made the dragonosaurus. He told one of his friends about it. Overnight he found a sick cow who had had a baby calf. He looked after the calf and at the end he got to keep the calf as his pet. I would recommend this book.

It was not really about the dragonosaurus it was mostly about a cow.

I liked this book because Joe cares about helpless animals.

I really enjoyed this book but I would rate this ages 3-8 as it is not worded for older children aged 9 or over. Although, this is a very good book because it is funny but I was always on edge and wanted to read more. All the characters were different in there own way and that is why I think it is an amazing book to read and listen to. I also liked all the pictures because they were all eye catching!

This book has a lot of drama! The main Character is Joe who is an ordinary Primary school boy. He falls in to a lot of trouble. But I won't give any spoilers!!!

You should read this book because its very good and it is about a animal talent show thing where you have to bring a animal to school but because his mum has asthma and cant have pets around her and there is a poor cow and thats sad though

I would tell others to read this book because it involves a tiny cow calf .Also the calf would have died but joe rescued the calf.
