Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto's super-fun Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Missing Treasure! When Flinn first met the Pirate Dinosaurs, he thought that he had taught them a lesson. But the real lesson is this - never trust a pirate, but never ever trust a pirate dinosaur. This time, Flinn is hot on the trail of some stolen treasure and he knows exactly who's to blame. With the help of his friends and Captain Gurgleguts, fearless Flinn tracks the rotten crew to the Lost Island. So far, so good, but Flinn and his pals hadn't reckoned on the dinosaur's secret weapon - the Giganotosaurus, T-Rex's cousin and the biggest dino the world has ever known! Will our hero be able to sail out of trouble this time? And what about all that stolen treasure? Luckily, every baddie has a weak spot and it's not long before the swashbuckling Flinn fights his way to victory! Giles Andreae is an award-winning children's author and has written both fiction titles and best-selling picture books. His picture book, The Lion Who Wanted to Dance, won The Federation of Children's Book Award in the best picture book category in 1998.
However, he is probably most famous as the creator of the phenomenally successful Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. Giles lives in Notting Hill with his wife and three young children. Russell has illustrated books by prolific children's authors such as Ian Whybrow and Cressida Cowell. The Witch's Children was shortlisted for the Greenaway last year and this year The Witch's Children and the Queen is on the Smarties shortlist. Russell lives in Penzance, Cornwall. Don't miss the other Captain Flinn picture books - they're all rip-roaring fun!

Book Review: Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Missing Treasure! by Giles Andreae - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (03 Nov 2013)
Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaur Missing Treasure comes from a series of Captain Flinn books. It’s hard to resist not reading this story after seeing the stunning title cover. In this latest adventure Flinn is off to the museum when looking at the terrifying dinosaur bones, the museum curator points out that some treasure went missing. Flinn and his friends find themselves in a mystery world flighting against pirate dinosaurs. This story really flares up the imagination, with dinosaurs and other worlds and portals. The illustrations are colourful and quite basic, almost sketch like in appearance, worth collection all in the series.
