A side-splitting picture book that's destined to be a storytime favorite!

Lexile: AD470


Between the crazy antics of the show-off dinosaur, the sweet and clever Jackson, and the surprise at the end, kids will simply eat this one up. Byrne’s illustrations are just as zany as the story. You and your child will be laughing out loud as the story unfolds, flipping pages eagerly.

This is a must read if you and your child enjoy picture books.

Highly recommended.


The Really, Really, Really Big Dinosaur by Richard Byrne In this story, a little dinosaur is being bullied by a "big" dinosaur. The little dinosaur stands up to the big dinosaur by claiming to have back up in the form of a best friend who is a really, really big dinosaur. As the big dinosaur continues to harass, the reader begins to realize the really, really big dinosaur is there and has been there all along, hidden in the pictures! The dinosaur friends then team up to teach the "big" dinosaur a lesson and help him to be kinder. This is a really imaginative story, the illustrations are great, it's funny, and once kids discover the secret of the story, they'll want to read it over and over again!
