About the Author

Julie Middleton writes scripts and stories for children's television. Are The Dinosaurs Dead, Dad? is her first picture book. She lives in England.

Russell Ayto had a varied career before turning his attention to children's book illustration. He worked as both a postman and a scientific officer. He has illustrated numerous books for children including 'The Witch's Children and the Queen', winner of the Smarties Gold Award, 2003, and 'The Witch's Children Go to School' which won The Funniest Book for Children Aged 6 and Under, a category of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, 2008. He lives in Cornwall with his wife and two young children.


"Children will enjoy the small museum warning signs, the droll humor, and most of all the surprise ending... Great for kids who like to tell their parents a thing or two about dinosaurs."
"Ayto's minimalist line drawings deliver laughs...[Middleton] does a fine job of channeling the fears--or fantasies--of young dinosaur fans."
"A comedic treat... The dialogue between father and son is delightfully conducive to a read-aloud, and Ayto's artwork adds rich, rib-tickling layers to the book's humor.... A highly entertaining selection that is sure to be a big hit."
"Young children going through the 'dinosaur phase' of enthusiasm for the Mesozoic and its reptiles will get a kick out of Julie Middleton's 'Are the Dinosaurs Dead, Dad?' with comic illustrations by Russell Ayto."
