Dragons of the Prime
Poems about Dinosaurs
Dragons of the Prime is an anthology for children which tackles the big questions about these larger-than-life creatures: what would a baby diplodocus pray for, and just how big is a dinosaur’s egg? Along the way it takes in fossil-finders – like the pioneering Mary Anning – T-Rex’s gym routine, and chickens who dream at night of their dino ancestors’ ‘dagger teeth’. There are poems about dinosaurs in their Jurassic heyday, poems about new discoveries and the latest scientific knowledge, and poems about the history of how humans have imagined these amazing beasts.
