My Dinosaur Is More Awesome! (Hardback)Simon Coster (author)
When Joel and Olivia sit down to dinner, with two of their favorite dinosaurs, Olivia can’t help but point out that her dinosaur is better. Olivia’s dinosaur can play the trumpet while riding her bike, and her house is in the shape of a rabbit. Her dinosaur can make her own jam, and she even eats electric eels. But Joel’s dinosaur can swim like a shark, and his teeth sometimes glow in the dark. And he’s really good at jumping and sliding on his knees, he has x-ray vision, and he’s not afraid of bees. Of course, with so many impressive qualities, it’s hard to say which dinosaur is really better, but things get even trickier when a third dinosaur joins them at the dinner table. What could be more fearsome than a dinosaur that once ate a volcano and wears slippers the color of rainbows?
The wonderfully funny, imaginative, and vibrant illustrations are perfectly matched to this new take on a dinosaur story, and the loosely rhyming text is hilarious and unexpected. With a battle unlike any dinosaur fight you’ve seen before, this book is perfect for all dinosaur lovers, siblings, and parents alike. Simon Coster’s debut picture book is a worthwhile addition to any child’s library and is sure to get some giggles during story time.

"True to the spirit of children’s imaginations, this playful story is a quick and fun read. The author is a self-taught artist whose painted illustrations are large and bright, reflecting the larger-than-life feats Olivia and Joel create. Each new skill the dinosaurs acquire appears on a new page, against a white background, making them stand out and capture attention. The cartoonish font and silly title draw on the humor and children’s perspective. Kids will love hearing this story read aloud, so they can begin their own friendly feud with their peers. Verdict: A creative and fun debut picture book."—School Library Journal
