Synopsis

Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner by Gareth Edwards

This fun, rhyming read-aloud will guide young children through the bedtime routine. Would you ask a dinosaur to dinner? Would you share your toothbrush with a shark? Through a series of amusing mishaps, a young boy learns that a dinosaur, a shark, a tiger, and other animals will not help him get a good night's sleep. Instead, he holds a teddy bear and counts sheep, realizing that they are the animals best suited for the bedtime routine. Gareth Edwards' rhyming read-aloud text is brought to life with the fun, charming art of Guy Parker-Rees, the bestselling illustrator of Giraffes Can't Dance!

Reviews

Praise for Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner

Parker-Rees's kicky depictions of slightly anthropomorphic animals boogying on the dance floor are the highlight here. His watercolor and pen-and-ink artwork exudes a fun, party vibe. -- School Library Journal

Perfect for bedtime reading.... It's sure to be a big hit at story hours, too; expect young listeners to jump up and add their own wriggles and shakes to the dinosaur party. -- Booklist

... to the high-kicking 'Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!

-stirring activity is needed. The colorful, eye-popping illustrations are sure to entice. -- School Library Journal
