Scholastic Press, 2015. ISBN 9781743626009
Small boys like to dress up as dinosaurs, GREAT big DINOSAURS!
One small boy has found a dinosaur to show him how he must learn to roar, stomp and EAT to be a GREAT big DINOSAUR.
Then the dinosaur learns that there is a lot more to EAT than just meat! And a lot more to being a boy. There's reading and playing soccer AND playing video games.
Maybe, the dinosaur decides, it would be more fun to be a little boy!
This book will appeal to all small boys . . . and even girls.
