Synopses & Reviews
Dinosaur is getting ready for Santa! He tackles many challenges — decorating, making presents for Mom and Dad, trying not to be naughty — and defeats each one with his trademark ROAR! But on Christmas Eve, when he hears some rustling downstairs, he can't resist a peek. Will our feisty red friend meet his match in the man in the red suit? Complete with sparkly silver foil on the front cover and a removable letter to Santa for little ones to personalize, this funny and sweet book is a must-have for the holiday season.
"Shea's red dinosaur has always been adorable as he's battled bedtime, the potty, and the library in earlier books, but in a snowsuit or sweaters festooned with snowmen and reindeer, he's downright irresistible. He's also grown up a bit: not only does Dinosaur emerge victorious in the realms of tree-decorating ('Roar! Balls! Roar! Lights! Dinosaur wins!') and present making (popsicle-stick frames are the order of the day), he's also disciplined enough to leave Santa's cookies alone. The wrapping paper-style backgrounds and vintage flourishes in Shea's artwork are especially well suited to a holiday story, and Dinosaur's unbridled energy is as infectious as ever. Ages 2 – 6.
