Description

Dinosaur is spending the day with Mommy. ROAR! He helps her wake up, go shopping, sort laundry, and more--his way, that is. By bedtime, it looks like Mommy is down for the count. Is one little red dinosaur just too much for her, or will Mommy win? Chock full of the bold graphics and exuberance that has made the Dinosaur vs. series so popular, this book will tickle toddlers and mommies on Mother's Day and every day thereafter.
Praise for Dinosaur vs. Bedtime

*" Kids will be only too happy to capitulate to this irresistible package." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Dinosaur vs. the Potty

*"Shea's bold collages are as in-your-face charming as his energetic hero, whose exuberance and stubborn avoidance of the potty will elicit both empathy and laughter." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Dinosuar vs. the Library

"Story time may have conquered Dinosaur, but with boisterous noise and boundless energy, Shea's Dinosaur titles will never fail to be read-aloud hits." -Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Dinosaur vs. Santa

"Dinosaur's unbridled energy is as infectious as ever." -Publishers Weekly

Praise for Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great

"Shea's cleverly written tale makes this a standout, but there's substance here, too. The grass may always seem greener, but the message comes across that everybody has special strengths, and togetherness can often maximize them. This tale of discovered friendship will delight unicorn fans and perhaps create new fans for goats."
--Booklist (starred review)

"Shea examines a universal struggle that readers of all ages face: The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Unicorn may seem like he has it all...but that doesn't mean he's content. Even unicorns want to eat something besides glitter now and then. Brilliant in execution and hysterical in dialogue; Shea's pretty great, too."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
