Description

A hilarious guide to having a dinosaur . . . as a pet!

Dogs are delightful. Cats are cute. And fish are fun. But the best pet of all is . . . a DINOSAUR!

But how do you pick the dino that’s right for you? Spiky? Armored? Humongous? Pea-brained? Plant-eater? How do you take care of him once he’s (gulp!) home? How do you feed him, exercise him, take him to the vet, and give him a bath?! Not to mention train him, since he might like to chew on—er, swallow—Mom’s new shoes.

Full of little-known info and sage advice, this definitive guide to dino ownership is sure to thrill and delight kids everywhere!
