A fantastic rhyming story by Smriti Halls (I’m Sticking With You and Rain Before Rainbows), with dynamic illustrations from Richard Merritt (The Dinosaur Department Store), about discovering grit and building determination.

Diplodocus Dinah is BRILLIANT at everything. There’s nothing she can’t do and no competition she can’t win! But what happens when the Surfing Contest comes to Dino Town and Dinah discovers that surfing is something she just can’t dino-do! For the first time ever Dinah doesn’t come first. Will she be distraught? Or will she discover that there’s more to having fun than winning?

An encouraging and inspiring story, packed with hidden humour, that’s perfect for fans of Giles Andreae’s Giraffes Can’t Dance.


“Halls’ gentle rhyming text makes sure to celebrate Dinah for all her wonderful qualities, and remind us that all we need when the going gets tough is a hug and a bit of encouragement . . . Richard Merritt’s bright, eye-catching illustrations make a jolly and sweet, summery book with a kind message about resilience and caring.”
