It’s Sonia’s birthday. She’s got a new computer game. It’s called Dinosaur Dig. But when she starts to play the game something strange happens - and suddenly Sonia is somewhere very different. Where is she? What will happen? It was Sonia’s birthday. She had a new game.

“Dinosaur Dig!” exclaimed an excited Sonia, “Fantastic! This is just what I wanted!”

Sonia decided to try her new game. She switched on the computer, put the game in and looked at the screen. A strange icon appeared. Sonia clicked on the icon. FLSAH!

“Where am I?” asked Sonia.

“You are in Dinosaur Dig!” said the boy next to her.

“We have to find old dinosaur bones.”

“Here’s one!” said Sonia. She picked up a golden bone that was hidden under a bush.

“No!” shouted the boy.

“You mustn’t pick up the golden ones up! Now watch out for the dinosaur!”

Suddenly they heard a noise behind them. The ground began to shake. They heard a dinosaur roar. “RUN!” shouted the boy.

Sonia and the boy run fast through the bushes, but the dinosaur was getting closer. Sonia and the boy hide behind a bush.

“What will happen if the dinosaur catches us?” asked Sonia.

“Well, the game is over!” answered the boy.

“But I’ve got only three lives left. How many have you got?” asked the boy.

“Only one!” Sonia replied.

“ROAR!!” the dinosaur was there.

“Look!” shouted Sonia.

There was the same icon that she saw on her computer. Sonia touched the icon. FLASH!

Sonia was at home, sitting at her computer. She looked at the game.

“Bye, bye, dino” she said. “Hmmm, maybe I’ll play a different game.”
