Description / Dippy: The Nation's Favourite Dinosaur

Meet Dippy: Dippy is a Diplodocus (DIP-low-DOCK-us). Dippy was the first of its kind to go on display anywhere in the world when it arrived at the Museum more than a hundred years ago. Since then, Dippy has adventured across the length and breadth of the country.

Meet Waterhouse: Waterhouse the Mouse lives in the Museum and thought he knew about everything within its famous walls. Until one day he meets a gigantic bony stranger and a big booming voice.

When railroad workers unearthed the fossilised bones of a Diplodocus in Wyoming, USA in 1899, newspapers billed the discovery as the ‘most colossal animal ever on Earth’. Dippy, a replica of this famous skeleton, first arrived in London in 1905, and for many years served as an awe-inspiring welcome for visitors to the Natural History Museum.

This book answers many questions about the nation’s favourite dinosaur and will delight young readers with its imaginative illustrations.
