Description

Shake, shake, shudder ... near the sludgy old swamp. The dinosaurs are coming. Get ready to romp!
On the heels of the bestselling GIRAFFES CAN'T DANCE board book, DINOSAURUMPUS! is now available in board book!
Where can you find a Deinosuchus that practically pirouettes on its tail and a T. rex that bounds gracefully through the air? In DINOSAURUMPUS!, where dinosaurs run, boom, shake, and shudder their way to the "sludgy old swamp" and rock the night away.
Tony Mitton's delightful rhyme and Guy Parker-Rees's whimsical illustrations will make children want to join in the dance while they learn about some of their favorite prehistoric pals. By the time the romp is over, and the dinosaurs are fast asleep, kids won't be able to shake that jumping, thumping Dinosaurumpus beat!

Review quote

Praise for DINOSAURUMPUS! (written by Tony Mitton and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees)
"Perfect for bedtime reading.... It's sure to be a big hit at story hours, too; expect young listeners to jump up and add their own wriggles and shakes to the dinosaur party." --BOOKLIST

"From the swoop and 'Eeeeeek!' of the pteranodon ... to the high-kicking 'Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!' of the T. rex, each animal presents a fine opportunity for vocal and physical silliness that will be welcome wherever blood-stirring activity is needed. The colorful, eye-popping illustrations are sure to entice." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Praise for GIRAFFES CAN'T DANCE (written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees)
"Parker-Rees's kicky depictions of slightly anthropomorphic animals boogying on the dance floor are the highlight here. His watercolor and pen-and-ink artwork exudes a fun, party vibe." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
