What is included with this book?


What#x19;s forty feet long, fifteen feet high, and wears a necktie? Tobias#x19;s dad! He is, after all, a Tyrannosaurus. Despite his huge size and teath that are as sharp as knives, he#x19;s a lot like other dads--he likes corny jokes and magic tricks, and he works very, VERY hard at the office. He works so hard, in fact, he can#x19;t make it to Tobias#x19;s big Field Day baseball game. To make matters worse, the tough Chickenbone Gang shows up and tries to take over the game. Will Tyrannosaurus Dad show up and save the day?

Table of Contents

“Author Liz Rosenberg's down-to-earth, matter-of-fact narrative is accompanied by the painterly illustrations of first-time picture-book artist Matthew Myers to great effect; they add enough depth and nuance to make the story convincing, and a complete charmer. Sometimes people—and dinosaurs, it turns out—are a lot cooler than they pretend to be.” —Time Out New York Kids
