No longer content with building, zooming, or even rescuing, the dinosaurs now have their sights set on something much, much bigger . . . the moon! Join our fearsome friends as they prepare for their cosmic journey: Is the rocket ready? Will the launch go smoothly? Can they make it to the moon? Another fast and furious adventure for anyone who loves dinosaurs and vehicles!
Penny Dale is a best-selling children’s book artist and author, with editions in more than twenty languages. Her much-loved picture book Ten in the Bed sold more than a million copies worldwide. Penny is married, has one grown-up daughter and a grandson, and lives in South Wales.
Words or phrases repeat in subsequent lines, resulting in stanzas that beg to be read aloud, such as “Astronaut dinosaurs riding / Riding on the bus / On the bus, to the giant rocket.” Dale surrounds her catchy, lilting narrative with intricate and brightly colored watercolor-and-pencil illustrations full of enthusiastic dinos and lots of vehicles for space travel, such as a command module and a moon buggy—to name a few. Beautifully designed, this is a fun read from beginning to end.
Charged with imagination, younger kids will devour Dinosaurs Rocket!
