Puffin presents stories for five year olds from master storyteller, Dick King-Smith.
This collection includes King-Smith's stories for younger readers, including Dinosaur School!
In Dinosaur School Basil Brontosaurus is teased at playschool by all the other little dinosaurs, who call him stupid. His mother tells him he's special because he has two brains - one in his head and one is his back. Basil is so pleased that he starts to throw his weight around at playschool. That is, until he meets a large Tyrannosaurus rex!
The other Stories included in this collection are: Blessu, Dumpling, Henry the Pond Poet, Happy Mouse Day and Under the MishMash tree

Dick King-Smith was 56 years old when his first book was published, yet he went on to write over 130 books in his lifetime. That’s a lot of animal tales! If you’re not sure where to start with the books of Britain’s best-loved animal storyteller, then who better to ask than King-Smith's great-granddaughter Josie Rogers.
From crime-busting adventures and retold classics to fascinating history books, we've put together a list of the Puffin stories to watch out for in 2022. Jump to: January | February | March | April | May | June
