Sally and Joe discover a mysterious set of footprints leading out into their garden and beyond - and they are convinced the footprints were left by a dinosaur. Could they possibly be right? Join them in a clue-finding adventure and discover why you should never, ever follow a dinosaur! 

A joy to read-aloud, filled with funny ideas and a clever, cautionary twist! 

My Thoughts: 
When Sally and Joe find a mysterious set of footprints, they are certain that they belong to a dinosaur. They follow the footprints and speculate what kind of dinosaur it is, what it likes to do, and what happened to it. When the footprints disappear with no dinosaur in sight they decide to set a trap! 

This is a very cute and somewhat silly book. It was fun to track the dinosaur with the children and speculate what had happened to it by the state of the footsteps. My daughter and I enjoyed the illustrations and I'm sure children will really enjoy the story as well. It is kind of a mystery and I kept wondering what was going to happen. The ending gave us a good laugh.
