    1. Growing upI grew up in a tall Victorian London house with my parents, grandmother, aunt, uncle, younger sister Mary and cat Geoffrey who was really a prince in disguise Mary and I would argue about which of us would marry him.Mary and I were always creating imaginary characters and mimicking real ones, and I used to write shows and choreograph ballets for us A wind up gramophone wafted out Chopin waltzes.I studied Drama and French at Bristol University, where I met Malcolm, a guitar playing medic to whom I m now married Busking and booksBefore Malcolm and I had our three sons we used to go busking together and I would write special songs for each country the best one was in Italian about pasta The busking led to a career in singing and songwriting, mainly for children s television I became an expert at writing to order on such subjects as guinea pigs, window cleaning and horrible smells We want a song about throwing crumpled up wrapping paper into the bin was a typical request from the BBC I also continued to write grown up songs and perform them in folk clubs and on the radio, and have recently released two CDs of these songs One of my television songs, A SQUASH AND A SQUEEZE, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler It was great to hold the book in my hand without it vanishing in the air the way the songs did This prompted me to unearth some plays I d written for a school reading group, and since then I ve had 20 plays published Most children love acting and it s a tremendous way to improve their reading My real breakthrough was THE GRUFFALO, again illustrated by Axel We work separately he s in London and I m in Glasgow but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes.I really enjoy writing verse, even though it can be fiendishly difficult I used to memorise poems as a child and it means a lot to me when parents tell me their child can recite one of my books.Funnily enough, I find it harder to write not in verse, though I feel I am now getting the hang of it My novel THE GIANTS AND THE JONESES is going to be made into a film by the same team who made the Harry Potter movies, and I have written three books of stories about the anarchic PRINCESS MIRROR BELLE who appears from the mirror and disrupts the life of an otherwise ordinary eight year old I have just finished writing a novel for teenagers.When I m not writing I am often performing, at book festivals and in theatres I really enjoy getting the children in the audience to help me act out the stories and sing the songs When Malcolm can take time off from the hospital he and his guitar come too and it feels as if we ve come full circle back to busking.

    3. i learned nothing new from this book but i still enjoyed the plot. it is all about this small dinosaur called the hypsilophodon who finds it difficult to lay eggs without them being stolen or eaten by other larger and stronger dinosaur s who have days of the week called after them. while she runs from a big dinosaur she falls into a pond and thinks that she is going to drown instead of being eaten but she arrives to a farm safe and sound. she becomes familiar with the swallows who help her find [...]

    4. The Dinosaur's Diary is a story written from the point of view of a dinosaur called Hypsilophodon, who writes this story as a day to day diary. She has to struggle with keeping her eggs safe from predators. As this seems to be an impossible task due to the habitat she is in, she finds herself falling into a pool whilst being chased by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The pool magically brings her into another world (modern day earth).When Hypsilophoden discovers her new surroundings she is very timid and sc [...]

    5. This is a story written from the point of view of a dinosaur called Hypsilophodon. She desperately wants to have babies, but is terrorised by some of the bigger, more aggressive dinosaurs. This means she’s not able to have babies where she currently lives, because the more predatory dinosaurs eat her eggs for dinner. One day when she is fleeing for her life from a Tyrannosaurus Rex, she falls into a deep pool. When she finally emerges, she discovers she is in another world. Instead of being hu [...]

    6. This book is a brilliant book for young children to transition from picture books to more grown up literature styles. The story is beautifully illustrated, again to keep the childrens' attention and I personally believe to assist the transition. Julia Donaldson has completely hit the mark with this story, it has some unexpected twists and turns throughout and you never quite know what will happen next. The characters are well established, with more information given as the plot progresses.One di [...]

    7. Read to my 7 year old. Enjoyed reading it from the point of view of a dinosaur and written in a real diary form so a good read for a class of 7 year olds too!
