From three-year-old Fenn Rosenthal comes a sweet and deceptively simple story about love, longing, and loss, based on the viral, heart-melting song "Dinosaurs in Love".

Dinosaurs eat people, dinosaurs have a party, dinosaurs eat fruit and cucumber, but dinosaurs didn't say goodbye! When Tom and Fenn Rosenthal posted their original song, "Dinosaurs in Love", it became an instant classic. Just as Fenn's dinosaurs fell in love, so did the world.

Now readers of all ages can enjoy Fenn's heartfelt, poignant lyrics again and again in this irresistible, sing-aloud picture book, featuring charming illustrations from Hannah Jacobs (animator of the viral music video) and bonus material.
