Z-Rex Reviews


"For years, Cole has been a bit of an unsung hero of children's fiction with his Astrosaurs series about dinosaurs in space, an idea so funny that many 7-9s cannot help but read them. Z-Rex is a bit of a departure, however, in being simply a terrific thriller that younger fans of Anthony Horowitz will love...The alliance between boy and dinosaur is depicted with energy and an engaging sense of the possibilities of an interspecies partnership. It's a romping read, with an original twist and lots of suspense" -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
"The book is full of action, with cliffhangers galore, a tight, tense plot, and some really great visual scenes. It would make an excellent film. I suspect that when this hits the book shops, there will be a lot of other children around the country who will be cheering too..." * The Bookbag *

"The book is full of action, with cliffhangers galore, a tight, tense plot, and some really great visual scenes. It would make an excellent film" * thebookbag.co.uk *
"A novel which combines dinosaurs and fantasy is likely to prove popular, but Cole's adventure tale has far deeper and darker undertones for those who read it more closely. . . . The outcome offers a disturbing commentary on the ruthlessness of governments, on industrial espionage and on loyalty, seamlessly contained within a gripping thriller. Adam is an engaging hero, and Cole's descriptions of catastrophic dinosaur-induced events are powerful" * Book Trust *
