One Button Benny is back in a fantastic new picture book adventure. In this third book, One Button Benny and the Dinosaur Dilemma, Benny and his friends are trapped underground with a hungry dinosaur on the loose.

Will Benny have to press his ‘Emergency Button’? Can they escape being crushed and eaten by the dinosaur? Will they make it back in time for the Friday dance party?
