A muddle of dinosaur bones

The dinosaur fossils had been packed neatly and labelled correctly but on route to the museum a gigantic storm had struck the ship in which they were being transported and the boxes split open.  The curator was faced with a mass and a mess of bones of all sizes and densities. The problems of trying to piece them together starts and it is obvious the illustrator has had as much fun as the writer in creating the story that emerges. A good read aloud.
