ABOUT THE BOOK
A charming collection of gorgeously illustrated poems to encourage fun and bedtime bonding between parents and their children.
The bright pink flamingoasaurus spends its day standing on one leg looking for something to eat.The round and delicious tomotoasaurus sings a tune while soaking up the sun. These are just two of the imaginative and amusing dinosaurs dreamed up in The Bedtimeasnaurus, the sometimes naughty and always hilarious poetry collection for children by Mike Bayliss.
Devoloping the idea for over thirty years while working on other projects , Bayliss was encouraged to publish his collection after being diagnosed with stage IV non - Hodgkin lymphoma in April 2017, using his work as a positive outlet for his energy as he worked to battle the illness.
Complimented by charming illustrations, opportunities for kids to draw their own dinosaur creations and simple quizzes on each of the characters, The Bedtimeasnaurus not only provides an entertaining read for young children before they go to sleep but also offers a valuable chance for parents to connect and engage.
THE BEDTIMEASNAURUS by Mike Bayliss was met with rapturous glee when it popped through our letterbox and was quickly taken up to the kid's room to be devoured. I have two kids who are dinosaur crazy so I knew that this picture book would be popular and as we delved into the crazy, fun story with stunning illustrations, it was even more charming than I thought it would be.
My eldest read it easily and thoroughly enjoyed the different fonts used for some of the words, and they both really enjoyed the story with the Greedy-asaurus and the Octopus-asaurus being firm favourites. We all laughed as we came upon some of the funnier sentences (think burping and scratching bums) and it soon became a fixture at bedtime.
At the back of the book there is a quiz time section which was great fun and then there is a section where you get to draw your own bedtimeasnaurus and write a funny poem about your dino which the kids adored (and took very seriously!!).
THE BEDTIMEASNAURUS by Mike Bayliss is a wonderful addition to any bookshelf and perfect for boys and girls of all ages who enjoy a funny story with beautiful illustrations, and it would make the perfect Christmas gift for the little people in your life.
Born in Walsall West Midland, UK, Bayliss is an entrepreneur that owns companies in several industries including building supply and property development. He also owns Bespoke Brewery, which opened in 2012 and has since won a number of awards for its craft beer. He lives with his wife and three children in Forest Dean, UK. The Bedtimeasnaurus is his first book.
