Little Lap the dinosaur is finding it hard to make friends – and he just doesn’t know why!
Friends Don’t Like Roaring
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Antje Taylor was born and raised in Germany. She moved to Australia over 10 years ago and now lives in Brisbane with her husband Craig and her two young children, Lars and Pip.

The idea for Friends Don’t Like Roaring came to her when watching her son at the playground, not knowing how to talk and interact with other children.
ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR
Matt Howorth is a freelance British illustrator living in the north of England, specialising in character design for animation and children’s illustration. He graduated in 2015 with a First-Class Honours Degree in Illustration and Graphic Design. He has worked on multiple animation projects, including movies and cartoon TV shows.
He first fell in love with drawing after watching The Little Mermaid at his grandma’s house. He spent much of his childhood covering the living room floor in crayon drawings of mermaids and sea creatures.
Matt’s work has a focus on colour and shape, he likes to create designs that inspire a feeling of innocence and childhood playfulness. He isn’t precious about his linework, and usually likes imperfections in his drawing as it adds a hand-drawn quality to his digital pieces.
Along with drawing and creating, he likes marine biology, period dramas, and petting the neighbourhood cats.
