Dino Pets

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Gideon Kendall
Dutton Children’s Books, 2007

I got a dino
for a pet,
the BIGGEST dino
I could get.

It didn’t fit
through the door.
So I had to
try once more.

But then the fastest dino runs way. And the dino with the longest tail starts to wail. Something also goes wrong with the softest dino, and the smallest dino, and the scariest dino too. What will happen when there are no more dinos left at the Dino Pet Shop? Siiiiiigh! Grooooooan! The boy’s alone. Or is he? In addition to the fanciful fiction story, this book includes nonfiction dino-facts in the back–telling what really were the biggest, fastest, scariest dinos and more!
