Dinosaurs in Space (Balloon Toons)by Pranas T. Naujokaitis
Synopses & Reviews
Turns out, the dinosaurs weren't wiped out by a giant asteroid. No way! They saw that big rock coming and blasted off into space. There are 3 stories.
BURGERS VS. SALAD: The dinos occupy two entrée-oriented planets: planet Plant and planet Meat. Verbal insults and a food fight ensue between herbivores and carnivores as they chow down at the Big Comet Diner. An omnivore-dino brings the two sides together when he suggests veggie burgers and adding lettuce to the meat patties. The initially skeptical dinos eat it up and discover many mutual interests.
SCARY ALIEN FROM ANOTHER PLANET: The ETD's make the terrifying discovery of an Earthling astronaut. Turns out, the astronaut is even more freaked out when he gets a load of a bunch of space dinosaurs staring at him.
THE GREAT SPACE RACE: Dino-buddies have a contentious friendship--Tyrone's the free-spirited one who likes to make a contest out of everything and doesn't care about the rules. Stewart is more conscientious and practical. But when Tyrone's devil-may-care gamesmanship almost lands him in a black hole, it's Stewart to the rescue as he straps on jetpacks and pulls his pal away from the void.
About the Author
Self-billed (though many would agree) as a "rockstar cartoonist," Pranas grew up in a family whose artistic pursuits included dance, photography, and writing. As a kid, any blank inches of paper that came his way were sure to be covered with doodles and drawings. Pranas is the creator of the well-received Balloon Toons title
The Totally Awesome Adventures of the Brave Boy Knight. He will be forging further adventures for both the Dinosaurs in Space and the intrepid BBK. The author lives in Chicago, Illinos.
