‘Don’t Ask A Dinosaur’ Arriving April 2018


For kids who like Dinos there’s a new book coming out in April 2018 called Don’t Ask A Dinosaur. Authors Deborah Bruss and Matt Forrest Esenwine have written the story in a masterfully-executed rhyme.

“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?”

While Bruss has also written Book! Book! Book! (Scholastic, 2001), Big Box for Ben (Star Bright, 2011), and the upcoming Good Morning, Snowplow!, Esenwine’s children’s poetry can be found in numerous anthologies including J. Patrick Lewis’ The National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry (National Geographic Children’s Books, 2015), Kenn Nesbitt’s One Minute till Bedtime (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2016), and Lee Bennett Hopkins’ School People (Boyds Mills Press, 2018), as well as Highlights for Kids magazine.

Louie Chin is the illustrator. His work has appeared in a variety of publications and projects, including The New York Times, Boston Globe, and Nike.

Don’t Ask A Dinosaur is published by Pow! Kids Books. Recommended for ages 3-13. $17.99US/CAN. Look out for it!
