How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?

By Jane Yolen, Illustrated by Mark Teague

A playful peek into the homes of dinosaur babies and their parents at bedtime.

‘How does a dinosaur say good night
when Papa comes in to turn off the light?
Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout?
Does he throw his teddy bear all about?’

Most certainly not! Dinosaurs give their mums and dads big hugs and kisses, tuck their tails in and whisper, ‘Good night!’

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