Get ready for a ROARSOME time! When Max visits a local museum, he wishes he could ask the dinosaurs a bunch of questions. Since the museum is about to close, the curator (Dinosaur Dora) says, "Why don't you write our T. Rex a letter? He might even write back." And so begins a pen pal relationship unlike all others. At first, T. Rex's letters make him seem like a big, toothy tough guy who's too busy to write friendly letters to tasty little humans. But once Max and T. Rex start trading letters, they share funny jokes, silly facts, a baby tooth, rubber duckies, and more. This unlikely duo soon embark on an unusual friendship that spans the ages...and even includes very real cards and letters to open.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In Chae Strathie's accessible text, letters, birthday cards, postcards and e-mails all give facts about the dinosaurs housed in the museum. Nicola O'Byrne's brightly colored illustrations depict Max and the T. Rex partaking in kid-friendly activities like swimming, building sandcastles and celebrating birthdays (as well as one particularly humorous illustration of the T. Rex using a typewriter). Dear Dinosaur puts an entertaining and interactive spin on a topic that is always a kid favorite."
--Shelf Awareness, shelf-awareness.com
"An impressively original and thoroughly entertaining picture book for children ages 3 to 7 by the team of author Chae Strathie and illustrator Nicola O'Byrne, "Dear Dinosaur" is unreservedly and enthusiastically recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections."
--The Midwest Book Review
"Dear Dinosaur is a child's book of real letters from one child to a dinosaur. It was fabulous! Of course I loved it because I also loved Chae Strathie's other book, Gorilla Loves Vanilla. The illustrations were bright and cheerful. My children and I really got into this fun book. I definitely recommend it to all families. You will love everything about it."
--Sweetly Made Just For You, sweetlymadejustforyou.com
"A lighthearted addition to the epistolary genre."
--Kirkus Reviews
"Dear Dinosaur is highly entertaining and engaging--don't miss this gem of a book."
--Melissa Taylor, Imagination Soup, imaginationsoup.net
"This fun fantasy is perfect for children. The engaging artwork and clever attachments make this a fan favorite. Letters, postcards, and more are actually attached to the interior of the book. Families will enjoy this book. School and parish libraries may choose this book as a supplemental title for reluctant readers."
--Catholic Library World
