You can call her Ally-SAURUS
When Ally roars off to her first day at school, she hopes she'll meet lots of other dinosaur-mad kids in class. Instead, she's the only one chomping her food with fierce dino teeth and drawing dinosaurs on her nameplate. Even worse, a group of would-be "princesses" snubs her Will Ally ever make new friends? With its humorous art, appealing heroine, and surprise ending, this fun board book celebrates children's boundless imagination.
