On the incredible spaceship DSS Sauropod, along with his faithful crew, Gypsy, Arx and Iggy, Teggs rights wrongs, fights evil and eats a lot of grass! In this first adventure, the herbivore astrosaurs have to face a fearsome enemy - a band of greedy carnivorous raptors who have kidnapped two athlete dinosaurs from under Tegg's nose. Can the Captain save the dinosaurs, escape from terrifying T-Rexes and still save the Dinosaur Games?

"Who can resist the mix of dinosaurs and space?" The Sunday Times "Steve Cole has captured the attention of dinosaur-loving children with this super series of books ... Exciting and funny, this series is bound to be a hit with budding young readers" South Wales Argus "With black and white illustrations to break up the text, this funny, fast moving story should attract young readers, especially boys, and keep them turning the pages. Then, if they're really hooked, they've got the rest of the series to read too" wordpool.co.uk
Author description
Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, the voice of a Dalek and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers.
