Hello, I'm Dallas Campbell. This is a very explosive space adventure about two brave intrepid explorers a little boy and his ever hungry pet dinosaur who venture into outer space.
Danny, now dressed as an astronaut, is pressing a huge red button that is nearly as big as him and is looking at the dinosaur. (SFX rocket buttons)
The shiny, red space rocket is shooting up into the air leaving behind a huge blast of yellow fire and a trail of puffy grey smoke, high above the vast, sprawling city. (SFX space rocket)
To the right, the dinosaur has made it to the Moon and is munching his way through it, as if it were a gigantic piece of creamy, Swiss cheese. (SFX dino munching on rock with quiet berp) Surely he must be full by now.
On the right page, the dinosaur is munching his way through a UFO (SFX more munching) and is surrounded by all sorts of weird and wonderful things. There is a Mars Space Rover, satellites and a ginger cat wearing a stripy woolly hat underneath a space helmet! (SFX cat meow) Behind him, luminous pink and blue supernovas brighten up the sky. (SFX supernovas exploding) Just in front of the dinosaur's grasp is an alien, who has one huge eye and is trying desperately to get away from the dinosaur. (SFX alian) I am sure that dinosaur is getting fatter.
