Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

                         The Book                                                                                                                                                                                   

This is a fun book about a chicken with a dinosaur heritage and she can prove it.  She proudly pulls out her photo album and highlights all types of dinosaurs: Velociraptor, Iguanodon, Stegosaurs, Triceratops and even a sharp tooth T. Rex!  She gives her theory as to why the dinosaurs are now extinct and excuses herself from her narration

 because she has an egg to hatch.  Off she goes to straddle a HUGE egg all the while wondering what she in incubating.  She is in for quite a surprise! Kids love an element of surprise and an unexpected ending twist. 

The illustrations are cartoonish and full of details.  They are quirky and fun with lots of action.  The author cleverly weaves actual dinosaur information throughout to teach readers facts about these magnificent creatures.  Kids will love the whole concept of the book and go back I'm sure to read it again and again.  I highly recommend it.
