A Boy Wants a Dinosaur

(2006)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Alex is set on a dinosaur for a pet. So his grandfather took him to the Dino-Store to buy one, a Massospondylus. He called her Fred. But Fred ate far too much; her special hot steaming marsh in the bathroom was unhealthy; and when she goes to school the classroom makes her feel very sick. When they have to go on a walk in the country even Alex says, "This is going too far!" In the end, Alex is the first to agree when his grandfather suggests that his pet should actually be . . . a rabbit! The antidote to dog stories - a perfect explanation for why one pet is chosen rather than another.
