Die Olchis retten das Dino-Baby

The Ogglies Save the Baby Dinosaur

Calling all dinosaur fans: learn to read with the Ogglies.

Pooh, what a pong: stinking prehistoric farts!

Professor Brausewein has built a time machine - and it has catapulted the Ogglies straight back to prehistoric times. Here they meet a little dinosaur who’s looking for his mum. Of course the Ogglies are going to help him! However, they soon realise that life in prehistoric times is pretty dangerous. Not only is the little dinosaur being pursued by scary land-lubbers, but voracious pteradactyl is also after him. Can the Ogglies get him to safety before Brausewein transports them back to Smelliville?

- Erhard Dietl’s much loved Ogglies and the perennial favourite dinosaurs come together in one book.
- More than 40,000 copies sold of the book edition.
- 7.4 million Oggly products sold in total.
