Cravendale: The Milk Drinker's Milk Story

Cravendale: The Milk Drinker's Milk Story

Once upon a time, not very long ago, there lived a little boy called J. He lived in a house in a small town with his Mummy and Daddy. He was a good little boy, but there was one thing that was a big problem.

Little J was very specific about the milk he liked to drink. He only liked to drink milk that was pure, delicious, great-tasting and fresh-smelling. It had to be a certain temperature, not too hot and not too cold. And it had to be served up in his favourite hand-painted mug. The one he had painted himself when he was a little toddler.

Oddsockosauraus - a book review

"Aai, why are dinosaurs dead?"
"What does extinct mean?"
"Aai, what is an asteroid?"
These and a zillion other dinosaur related questions flow relentlessly from J between mouthfuls of fish fingers. The food varies daily, the questions do not. They are now a staple of our dinner table conversations.

I wonder what it is about dinosaurs that make them so appealing to children. Whatever the reasons, dino mania is here to stay.
