For some reason Goodreads lists this book as The Fantastic Journey of Padma and the Bluethingosaurus.

Maybe that's a UK or Indian edition? I'd guess @Stuckasaurus has the US edition.

Huh, interesting. I actually got my copy directly from the author herself, so I'm not sure where the difference comes from. "Bluethingosaurus" is the nickname Padma comes up with for the little blue Isisaurus she befriends, incidentally.

I note that the thumbnail of the book's cover in the link you shared has the correct book title, which makes the difference even more bizarre.

Have a look at this one, reviewed by @Horridus on his blog. This boon is nearly vintage, quirky as hell and sometimed unvoluntarily funny. All this makes it a perfect new book for my book collection!
