Saurus Street 1: Tyrannosaurus in the Veggie Patch, Nick Falk

Saurus St is just like any other street . . . except for the dinosaurs.

When Jack wishes for his own Tyrannosaurus, he doesn't expect a real live one to turn up in the veggie patch. It's pretty cool, but there's no way he can keep it. It's far too big to hide in the shed, and it's bound to eat one of the neighbours sooner or later.

With the help of local whizz kid Toby, Jack builds a time machine and sends the T-rex back to the dinosaur era. But when Toby, Jack and Charlie the dog get sent back to the Cretaceous period too, there's more than one troublesome Tyrannosaur to deal with.

Nick Falk

Nick is a practicing psychologist who lives with his wife and two young sons in London. He first picked up a pen aged seven, and has been writing ever since. He likes to write books that are two parts funny, three parts exciting and one part educational, with a dollop of fantastical thrown in. He first started making up stories for his two young sons when they were living by the beach in Tasmania, and 17 published books later, he's still going strong!

Nick has 4 series of books on the shelves, all for children aged 6 to 10. Saurus Street, which is about time travelling dinosaurs; Billy is a Dragon, which is about shape-shifting were-beasts; Samurai vs Ninja, which is about shuriken-filled battles; and the ‘How To' series, which is about kids getting horribly lost in history. Nick has lived and worked in Australia, the US and Asia, and arrived back in the UK in 2015.
