    A hilarious and heart-warming story about a boy with ADHD who is transformed into a dinosaur.

     

    When Rory's mum gives him dinosaur pie for dinner he doesn't expect to be transformed into an actual dinosaur!

     

    Illustrated by Alan O'Rourke

     

    Publishing 18th April 2024.

     

    Rory is having a weird week. A really weird week.

    He has been turned into a ridiculous, small, feathered dinosaur. Pretty awkward.

    Rory can’t use a human toilet. He can’t hold a video game controller in his little dino claws. His breath smells really bad. And his new carnivore body can’t stop craving sausages.

    Rory finally gets his friends to take his embarrassing situation seriously, and together they embark on Operation Make Rory Human Again. But it's not easy.

    Will Rory be stuck as a dinosaur forever?
