Description

Captain Teggs is no ordinary dinosaur - he's an astrosaur! 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! Teggs and his crew are trying to transport some very rare and precious eggs across the galaxy to a safe haven where they can hatch. But their mission is under threat from some rather greedy oviraptors - egg-eating dinosaurs! When they arrive at their destination they find that the planet is not quite what they were expecting - it's much larger and strangely egg-like...

Reviews
"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 "The kind of inspired, hysterically silly fantasy that boys adore" -- Amanda Craig The Times "Who can resist the mix of dinosaurs and space?" The Sunday Times
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, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successful Astrosaurs, Cows in Action, Astrosaurs Academy and Slime Squad series.
