Are The Dinosaurs Dead, Dad? BOOK REVIEW & GIVEAWAY



It should be easy to believe that dinosaurs are dead, right? Wrong! Dave's trip to the museum with his dad proves that sometimes what you believe isn't always what you see. His dad's futile attempt to convince Dave that the bigger than life antics of the dinosaurs are a figment of his imagination proves that parents aren't always right. Too bad his dad has to wait until a larger than life Tyrannosaurus tries to eat them before he shouts "Run, Dave, RUN!"

Instead of the usual skeletal dinosaurs, Ayto's bright illustrations of the dinosaurs bodies, give life to the museum experience. Throw in the dinosaurs names on the pedestals and the amusing trip becomes a disguised learning opportunity. Recommended fun for a the young radar and a great read aloud for parents.
