Inside Jay Jay Burridge’s Head: How He Bought Dinosaurs Back To Life

Former SMart presenter and children’s author Jay Jay Burridge has recently released his latest book The World Of Supersaurs: Raptors Of Paradise. We caught up with the inspiring author and artist to see what goes on inside the mind of a true creative.

Your new book World Of Supersaurs : Raptors of Paradise has just been released. Why is this book set to be the perfect stocking filler for kids this year?

The book is for both boys and girls and covers a pretty big age range too. It’s also a great one for reluctant readers, as it comes with a free Supersaurs app which allows you to look at all 100 illustrations and literally bring them to life. There’s a game to play along with too, so it’s a lot of things in one brilliant book.

For Winter Nights…review of Raptors of Paradise

Thank you to Kate and her wonderful blog "For Winter Nights" for taking the time to review Raptors of Paradise. We are so thrilled you loved the book!

"I really enjoyed this. The illustrations make it, they really do. There’s so much to look at. But I also enjoyed the adventure, the courageous and determined Bea, her slightly intimidating grandmother Bunty and her very handy friend Theodore Logan. And I certainly enjoyed the dinosaurs – which are all listed and described at the back of the book. All in all, it’s a long way away from the Oxfordshire countryside that Bea is used to. I think young readers will absolutely love this!"
