There's a Dinosaur in my Bathtub by Catalina Echeverri (Bloomsbury Publishing)

There's a Dinosaur in my Bathtub

Written and Illustrated by
Catalina Echeverri

Published by Bloomsbury Publishing

Did anyone have an imaginary friend? Mine was called Pooki, and lived in the boiler cupboard at home in our house in London. Charlotte maintains that she doesn't have any imaginary friends but if she did, she'd want a fairy who could wave her wand and grant wishes (Smart kid - Pooki just spent a lot of time grumbling about the cramped living quarters).

In "There's a Dinosaur in my Bathtub" by Catalina Echeverri, Amelia's imaginary friend is a dinosaur. He's a rather natty french chap called Pierre, resplendently accompanied by the world's most brilliant twirly moustache. Though he lives in the bath, Pierre is expert at hiding away whenever mum or dad need to use the bathroom.

Pierre and Amelia have the most wonderful playtimes, they're always happy and always there for each other.

Catalina's fab illustrations add to the fun of her bouncy and brilliant little story.

We'd love to hear about your imaginary friends. Drop a comment below, we love to hear from you!

Charlotte's best bit: Charlotte innocently asked what Pierre does when Amelia's dad needs a poo. Er...not covered by the book thankfully!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Love the illustrations, particularly Pierre's masterful 'tache!
