Description
Where does a young dinosaur admirer go to find a pet? The Dino Pets store carries every kind of dinosaur a kid could possibly want. Sure, some of them might be a little too big and others might be too fast, but there are advantages, too--a "Seismosaurus" makes a great backyard playset In this bouncy read-aloud, the larger-than-life but well-meaning dinosaurs come to life in vibrant color. Kids will love the juxtaposition of prehistoric creatures and modern-day suburbia. A section of facts about the amazing giants makes the book a complete delight for the youngest paleontologists.



About the Author
Born in New York City in 1926, Donn Fendler joined the Navy in World War II. After college he returned to serve his country as an officer in the U.S. Army, retiring after thirty years with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He now splits his time between Clarksville, Tennessee, and Newport, Maine. He has given countless talks at schools, libraries, and to scout troops about his tale of survival.

Jennifer Nielsen lives at the base of a very tall mountain in Northern Utah with her husband, three children, and a naughty puppy. She wishes to make it clear that most Yetis are not as threatening as the one in this book. Sadly, she cannot say the same for Centaurs. Visit www.jennielsen.com
