SUMMARY: A young boy asks his mom for a puppy. He is told no. He goes outside to a yard sale where he finds a dinosaur egg. He brings it home and it hatches into a triceratops. All is well until the baby dino gets loose. The boy begins to chase the dino, who is wreaking havoc on his town. The boy is unsuccessful at catching his dino so he goes back to the yard sale and asks the man who sold him the egg for help. The man gives him a horn to blow that attracts dinosaurs. The boy blows the horn and he gets more than he bargained for--too many dinosaurs! Once he figures out how to make the dinosaurs go away, the boy's mother decides he does need a puppy after all.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created digitally. They are fun, colorful, creative, full of life and have delightful characters. There is a lot of interesting detail which will bring the young reader back again and again for another look.

REVIEW: This was a fun book! The story line was creative with a little fantasy woven into a story about a boy who really just wanted a puppy. Watching the dinosaurs run amok was a delight. The wording is simple making this a wonderful book for a newly independent reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes humorous books and dinosaurs.
