With its sweet illustrations, appealing characters, and clever concept, Charles Fuge's wonderful new picture book really soars to imaginative heights. Scratch, Spike, and Lofty--a friendly trio of dinosaurs--dream only about flying. So one day they climb a volcano, hoping that if they jump off the edge and flap, they just might really take flight.  But it turns out that flying is harder than it seems--until a kind pterodactyl shows them the way, and helps them turn “let's pretend” into reality.
