ABOUT THE BOOK
written by Matt Forrest Esenwine, illustrated by Louie Chin
DON’T ASK A DINOSAUR is about a party that goes wildly awry when a pack of dinosaurs with very unique physical attributes attempt to help set up.
Written in a masterfully-executed rhyme, the book presents a cavalcade of lesser-known dinos and pairs their odd characteristics with little tasks that are hilariously impossible because of those features. “Don’t ask Deinocheirus to set the forks and spoons,” because his hands were enormous, “Therizinosaurus cannot blow up balloons,” because he had very long claws. In the end they find the one thing everyone can help do is to blow out the candles on the cake…but will it create yet another mess?
