A playful peek into the homes of poorly dinosaurs

Summary

A playful peek into the homes of poorly dinosaurs

`What if a dinosaur
catches the flu?
Does he whimper and whine
in between each Atchoo?'

Most certainly not! Dinosaurs get lots of juice and rest . They use hankies, take their medicine and are well-behaved at the doctor's!

Brimming with humour and familiar antics, here is a playful peek into the homes of poorly dinosaur children and their parents. Mark Teague uses a variety of perspectives in his dramatic, full-page pictures of tyrannosaurus rexes, triceratopses, and pteranodons.
