Why does nobody but Wanda notice that her grandpa is a dinosaur?  He has a tail. He is green and scaly. He is enormous. But no one believes her. A story for all those who see so much that adults (and some children) don’t (or can’t) told with minimal text and generous ‘cut and come again’ illustrations. The story of the writer and illustrators is almost as unusual as the narrative – please Google to find the background including the fact that Richard Fairgray is almost totally blind.
