DINOSAURGJENGEN: EGGET 
Published by Kagge, 2019

Exciting dino series for children from 5 and up.

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!

THE DINOSAUR BUNCH (1) THE EGG

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…

THE DINOSAUR BUNCH (2) THE SWIMMING COMPETITION

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. 

In THE DINOSAUR BUNCH, Lars Mæhle and Lars Rudebjer have created a whacky dinosaur universe for little ones, jam-packed with fun and funniness. This is the first book in a colourful series that follows the big and small happenings in the lives of Rasmus Rex and his friends. The books are perfect for reading aloud and are suitable for young children who have just started to read on their own. At the back of each book there are lots of facts about all the dinosaurs featured in the story.
