Something is stirring in the dinosaur jungle – it’s Itchy-saurus. His itchy, scratchy skin is making him bad-tempered. Can Doc Bill (the Platypus) help Itchy to calm down – perhaps with some lovely soothing cream? Rosie Wellesley’s latest book is a tale packed with jokes and fun (and dinosaurs), but it also addresses a serious issue.

Although we do not know if dinosaurs had eczema, 20% of children do, and this book is perfect for reassuring them that they are not alone.
