Swamp Stories about dinosaurs made to your childs name

Swamp Stories




The Swamp Stories is a children's book about dinosaurs, particularly Sophie Pteranadon. The book can be bought with your child being the star.

A number of years ago my mother wrote a series of stories for my daughter Sophie. She wrote in her introduction.

Sophie sang this song to us when we visited her at Christmas 1989. During that holiday we bought a model Pteranadon from Perth museum which she named Boy, and hung it from the living room ceiling. This gave me the idea for some stories to amuse Sophie. 

Sophie's Song.

Listen to the chorus of the brontosaurus,

And the stegosaurus down by the swamp.

Here's the Woolly mammoth tusks all curly,

Joins the Hurly Burly, Oh dear me.

What a noise it's the boys of the prehistoric animal brigade.

What a noise.

The book consists of 23 chapters some long some short, detailing the adventures of Sophie, a Pteranadon, and her prehistoric friends. Who live by the swamp many years ago, and do battle with Bad Jason the crocodile and the Wicked Witch of Mount Buttock, amongst others the . The book of 60 pages contains 10 beautiful water colour paintings similar to the one above, in addition a considerable number of line drawings.

I have placed a three of the stories for you to look at. Rebecca does her homework, The Choir outing and Sophie goes to the toilet.
