A hugely popular picture book for our youngest dino-lovers. If you happen to have a dinosaur, lying around your living room, and you don't know what to do with it...why don't you use it as a can opener? It will make a terrific nutcracker too! There are oodles of uses for a dinosaur -- from a fine umbrella to an excellent kite and a dandy pillow, not to mention a reliable burglar alarm and the perfect excuse to forget your homework. This delightfully absurd exploration of the domestic uses of dinosaurs -- and the things dinos just aren't good for at all -- is guaranteed to tickle funny bones and spark imaginations. If you read carefully, you'll learn how to make your dinosaur last a very long time.
Here's the story wonderfully retold by a story-teller from the National Library's KidsRead Programme*:
