Résumé:

It's funny, it's fun-an irrestible "spoof"! Congratulations! You're bringing home your very first pet dinosaur. But there's so much to think about and to prepare. Which dino gets on well with children or adapts best to life in a city apartment? What kind of food does it eat (and how can you avoid being its meal)? What bed would make it feel completely comfy? And what about a working dinosaur--one to watch over the home or do tricks for an audience? With tongue planted firmly in cheek, this "dino owner's manual" amusingly explains what every human must know before adopting a new saurus. Find out what should go into the basic toolkit (a stout shovel is helpful and so are reinforced gauntlets); which species thrive in household life and which will cause BIG problems; and what dinosaurs are just right for circuses and zoos, in security, and for giving eggs and meat. For every dinosaur covered, there's information on feeding, breeding, housing, and availability; maps of where they lived; details on weight and size; as well as other pertinent facts. This creative, fun, and unique approach to dinosaurs will stir kids' imaginations and teach them, too. The illustrations cleverly mix photography and art to bring humans and dinos together for the first time, and show the animals in domestic situations. A Compsognathus in a litter box and a Microvenator peeking hungrily into a refrigerator are particular comic highlights. This is surely the most amusing way to learn about dinosaurs ever.
