I’m very excited to announce two events in conjuction with the publication of Dino Pets Go To School:
On Halloween I’ll be reading some of my books at Appleseeds in Manhattan. It will be part of a full day of festivities and I’ll be doing my part at 4:30pm. Then on Saturday November 5th I’ll be at the world-famous Books of Wonder, also in Manhattan, from 12-2pm.
Here is a recent review from Booklist:
The humor that results from giant dinosaurs in everyday settings never seems to go extinct. Here, it’s Pet Day at school, and most kids bring in quotidian creatures, such as a guinea pig or dog. But one kid brings his dinos, each of which wreaks a different kind of havoc. When the tallest one “sits on the bus,” it literally sits on top of the bus; the smartest one eats the students’ math quizzes; and so on. A chart at the back of the book identifies each kind of dinosaur, first by how it is described in the narrative, then by its scientific name. Colorful illustrations realistically portray the school setting, which makes the dinosaurs’ ridiculous antics even funnier in contrast.
