Dragons and Dinosaurs are the fantastical beasts of myth, legend and history: exciting monsters for young minds as they read, learn and play. With their big teeth, loud roars and fire-breathing jaws, they are thought of as fearsome, scary and mean creatures - even by other Dragons and Dinosaurs! Starting with the story, A Roaring success!, this musical activity book and CD tells the tale of two feuding Dragon and Dinosaur families who soon find out that they're not so different after all.
