Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner

by Gareth Edwards

This fun, rhyming read-aloud will guide young children through the bedtime routine. Would you ask a dinosaur to dinner? Would you share your toothbrush with a shark? Through a series of amusing mishaps, a young boy learns that a dinosaur, a shark, a tiger, and other animals will not help him get a good night's sleep. Instead, he holds a teddy bear and counts sheep, realizing that they are the animals best suited for the bedtime routine. Gareth Edwards' rhyming read-aloud text is brought to life with the fun, charming art of Guy Parker-Rees, the bestselling illustrator of "Giraffes Can't Dance "
