Staff Reviews


It’s a problem we’ve all encountered; you have a spare dinosaur lying around but don’t know what to do with it! Well, this book has several inventive ideas for how to put your dinosaur to use that you may not have thought of (coffee grinder, diving board) as well as some warnings… (Seriously, DO NOT let a dinosaur carry your picnic basket!).

— From Kinsey's Picks


A hugely popular picture book, now available in oversized board book format for our youngest dino-lovers.

If you happen to have a dinosaur, lying around your living room, and you don't know what to do with it...why don't you use it as a can opener? It will make a terrific nutcracker too There are oodles of uses for a dinosaur -- from a fine umbrella to an excellent kite and a dandy pillow, not to mention a reliable burglar alarm and the perfect excuse to forget your homework. This delightfully absurd
exploration of the domestic uses of dinosaurs -- and the things dinos just aren't good for at all -- is guaranteed to tickle funny bones and spark imaginations. If you read carefully, you'll learn how to make your dinosaur last a very long time.
