Alfred likes to scare the other dinosaurs. When they are really frightened, he laughs himself silly.
Of course, it doesn't make him very popular. In fact, one day when Alfred's tail gets stuck in a tree, he has to realise, no one is prepared to help him.
Alfred has no friends at all.

He starts to cry and tries to wriggle free and when he finally manages it, he hits the ground hard.
When he looks up, he sees a strange tree hovering in the air and when he walks into the hollow tree trunk, he finds himself all of a sudden in modern times.
To start off with, this does not automatically mean, that our Alfred stops to scare others, but sometimes, depending from who gets scared, it can make more sense.
Nevertheless, as his old habits die hard, he once again has his tail stuck in a tree.

Will he find any help this time? And will Alfred understand, that playing mean games alone isn't half as much fun as playing fun games with a true friend?

Alfred the Time Traveling Dinosaur is a cheerful book, with colourful and vibrant cartoon style illustrations. The rhyming story teaches children in a hugely enjoyable way, that scaring and bullying others isn't the right way to find friends.

There are no real cliffhangers at the end, but Alfred's adventure will continue and there's a link to the author's website where the kids can decide, what they would love to read and see in the next book. Every little helper's name will then be listed on the first page of the new book.
My preschoolers certainly loved Alfred and have already lots of ideas for the sequel. ( )
