In this lighthearted and nearly wordless book, a hapless little dinosaur leaves a trail of mayhem behind him as he jumps from one disaster right into another. To the consternation of his whole family, it seems that he can do nothing right.

Mary Newell DePalma's bright watercolor paintings tell the simple, hilarious story of this mischievous but endearing little dinosaur's disastrous day. Children will be amused as they follow the main character from one scrape to the next.
