It wasn't really Rory's mum's fault. She just bought Dinosaur Pie for a change and gave it to Rory for his dinner. The next morning he was a dinosaur. Not dressed up as a dinosaur - actually a dinosaur. It's not all that funny really. Rory can't talk and he can't bear the thought of eating an apple. All he wants to eat is sausages. It doesn't wear off. The supermarket that sold the pie doesn't want to know and the doctor isn't all that helpful. What are they going to do to get Rory to turn back into a human boy?
