Alex is set on a dinosaur for a pet. So his grandfather took him to the Dino-Store to buy one, a Massospondylus. He called her Fred.

Everything about Mr Big is big. And ordinary pens just won't do; every time he tries to write, Mr Big's ordinary sized pens break. So Mr Big drives to the shop in his big car to buy a big pen. But size is not the only surprising thing about Mr Big's new pen. This is a Band 04/Blue book which offers longer, repeated patterns with sequential events as well as integrated literary and natural language. This is a fantasy story, and a storyboard on pages 22 and 23 provides a pictorial summary of the story in eight frames - an ideal cue for further discussion and activity. This book supports numeracy learning with shape, space and measure. This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery and quizzed for Accelerated Reader.
