If you happen to have a dinosaur, lying around your living room, and you don't know what to do with it ... why don't you use it as a can opener? It will make a terrific nutcracker too! There are oodles of uses for a dinosaur -- from a fine umbrella to an excellent kite and a dandy pillow, not to mention a reliable burglar alarm and the perfect excuse to forget your homework. This delightfully absurd exploration of the domestic uses of dinosaurs -- and the things dinos just aren't good for at all -- is guaranteed to tickle funny bones and spark imaginations. If you read carefully, you'll learn how to make your dinosaur last a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comical and Delightful What a fun read as you sail along with your favourite size and shape of dinosaur - that is, if you happen to have one. Everyone should have one. They are so helpful and useful and make life so much easier. The drawings are delightful and comical with a retro feel to them. So enjoyable the entire family will want to read it.
