Author(s): Carol Diggory Shields
This is a rollicking rhyming dinosaur picture book for young children. Have you ever wondered what the dinosaurs did for fun? What really happened when the Jurassic gang wanted to let off some steam? They danced, of course! They rocked and rolled, they twirled and tromped! They had themselves a dinosaur stomp! Join Diplodocus, Iguanodon, Duckbill, Tyrannosaurus, Allosaurus, Brontosaurus and other rockin' dinosaurs at the biggest, loudest, wildest party ever! Boomalacka boomalacka! Whack! Whack! WHACK!
"* "Dinosaurs, rock and roll, and rapping are a powerful combination... a resounding hit." Child Education * "A larger than life romp... so vibrantly illustrated you can feel the earth judder as Tyrannosaurus Rex heads up a conga line." Scotland on Sunday"
Carol Diggory Shields was inspired to write this book when she was called a "Nagosaurus" by her five-year-old. "I started playing with the idea of partying dinosaurs who were scientifically accurate (more or less), and somehow in the prehistoric ooze of my brain, this book took shape." Carol is also the author of The Bugliest Bug (9780744598131). She lives in California, USA. Scott Nash is the illustrator of Oh, Tucker! (9780744563627) and The Bugliest Bug (9780744598131), and is the author-illustrator of Tuff Fluff (9780744593235). A co-founder of a design studio specializing in children's products and media, he lives in Boston and Maine, USA.
