Anna | 3 comments hi all i am trying to remember a book from my childhood. it was an illustrated childrens book about a girl who found a small dinosaur that looked a little like a green stegasaurus, however she was not allowed to keep pets in her house, so it had to hide or pretend it was furniture whenever anyone else was around. that is about all i can really remember.
can anyone help me??
thanks all :)

For some reason 'Thing' jumps in my head but I've been searching, because it's annoying me now.. and I cannot find anything on it.
