Dinosaur's Night Before Christmas by Jim Harris


Dinosaur's Night Before Christmas by Jim Harris

Its Christmas Eve and Dad is up late, testing a game for his son. A sudden ruckus outside brings him to his feet, and when he looks into the sky, he can hardly believe his eyes. Eight gigantic dinosaurs are pulling a strange UFO across the sky! It isnt long before this night before Christmas turns into a nightmare. The ferocious dinosaursSmasher, Splinter, Crusher, Fang, Biter, Slang, Stomper and a mean, mighty T-Rex dressed like an evil St. Nicksoon start destroying the neighborhood, gobbling up the presents, and ruining Christmas. When Dad meets the real Santa Claus, the two of them, along with some pretty amazing bubble gum, a powerful video gun, and some surprise helpers, engage in one epic battle to save Christmas. Imaginatively detailed illustrations from award-winning Jim Harris turn this hilarious and fantastic Christmas story into a larger-than-life Jurassic adventure.
