From decorating the tree to wrapping presents, little dinosaurs love to celebrate Christmas-and everything about it. With ornaments on the branches and carolers singing at the door, the spirit of Christmas is finally here and filling the hearts of families everywhere. But when the stockings are hung on the chimney, and the cookies are left out for Santa, how can little dinosaurs go to sleep? It's so exciting! How can they possibly calm down and behave?
Children will laugh out loud as dinosaurs secretly lick candy canes, take sneaky peeks at gifts, and disrupt the traditional family feast.
With holiday surprises around every corner, the awardwinning team of Jane Yolen and Mark Teague create an engaging, fun gift sure to be read again and again, year after year. How do dinosaurs say Merry Christmas? The same way they say Happy Chanukah: with an abundance of love, joy, memory, and gratitude.
MARK TEAGUE is an award-winning children's book author/illustrator whose books include the How Do Dinosaurs series; his Dear Mrs. LaRue series; Firehouse!; and recently his first novel, The Doom Machine, which received excellent reviews. Mark lives in New York State with his wife and their two daughters.
Praise for How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas
"Yolen's characteristically wry verse is flawless in its rhyme and rhythm, and as in the earlier outings, the art's buttoned-up 1950s fashions and furnishings provide a comical visual contrast to the outlandish, brightly colored dinosaurs."
"A deceptively simple rhyming text . . . serves as a sturdy foundation for the brilliantly humorous illustrations. As with the earlier books, children will love seeing what sorts of trouble the dinosaurs get into while appreciating the loving familial feeling that comes from celebrating the holiday together." -School Library Journal
"Bouncy rhymes and humorous illustrations-the images of vivacious large-scale dinosaurs alongside the staid, rather Rockwellian humans are consistently funny-combine to make welcome entries in Yolen and Teague's Dinosaurs series and in holiday book collections." -Horn Book
"[A] rollicking romp . . . Those naughty dinosaurs have the most fun, and their fans will be waiting to see what they get up to next." -Kirkus
"The series' star attractions are Teague's colorful and playful dinosaurs, not to be found in any museum." -USA Today
