Get to know all about dinosaurs big and small in THE DINOSAUR BUNCH. Rasmus Rex is a slightly anxious six year-old who lives together with his family in the big boggy forest. Rasmus is always being reluctantly dragged along on adventures by his best friend, Trym Troodon. Trym is six years old too, but nothing frightens him. And then there’s Grandma Rex. She isn’t nearly as sweet and elderly as she looks. Sometimes she can be downright deadly!

Early one morning, Rasmus Rex rudely awoken by his friend, Trym Troodon. Trym has big news: His mum’s egg is about to hatch! Rasmus and Trym decide to take a shortcut through the boggy forest to get there in time. But is this very wise? On the way they meet some fairly fear dinosaurs. And when they come out the other side, a surprise is waiting for them…

Rasmus Rex is visiting the beach with his family and his best friend, Trym. Rasmus isn’t such a good swimmer, so when his big brother Robin challenges Rasmus and Trym to a swimming competition, it can’t possibly go well. All these rumors about a sea monster in the water don’t help either. It turns out to be an exciting competition, with plenty of Dino-surprises the whole way through.
