The dinosaur who lived in my backyard by B. G Hennessy( Book )
14 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 1,517 libraries worldwide
About midway into this story, what has appeared to be a young boy's wishful thinking becomes a smooth piece of nonfiction, charmingly packed with facts by Hennessy. The narrator tells how the dinosaur hatched, how large it grew and how much it weighed, in scenes that are part of his backyard. But soon the backgrounds change, and the dinosaur becomes part of the past, playing with the other species now extinct, on land that only millions of years later would become this child's neighborhood. Davis, illustrator of When Daddy Comes Home and Waiting for Mom, adds an appealing number of odd perspectives in what is becoming her characteristic souped-up pastels: a dinosaur foot next to a sandbox; a dinosaur jumping into the air, much larger than the house behind it; the boy and his sister, with a bushel- and wagonfull of lima beans, hoping for the dinosaur's return. Ages 3-8

The party : a guide to adventurous entertaining by Sally Quinn( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In "The Party", Sally Quinn turns her trademark sharp wit on the Washington social scene and offers an irreverent look at what goes on at the parties you read about in the columns. From seating debacles to real-life scandals, she reveals her firsthand experiences as a member of the Washington power elite to illustrate how to entertain for any occasion. No one knows better than Quinn how to make parties work. She has thrown some of the most talked-about parties and has attended most of the others. As Quinn writes, all that is necessary is that the host live by the golden rule: "Treat your guests the way you would like to be treated." "The Party" provides a checklist of ideas to help make the important decisions-- such as what time of day (or night) or month and how to choose the invitations, the place, the food, the booze, the setting, the table, the entertainment, and, above all, the guests. Within these guidelines, Quinn tells about her own adventures, stories, and techniques from all kinds of different parties-- from the elaborate, formal dinner to the impromptu get-together. Her playful, poignant, and often hilarious accounts of party disasters from her own and others' parties will strike a chord with anyone who has ever entertained. "The Party" is not only an amusing and lively glimpse into the party scene but also a useful and practical guide to making your own parties a success and guaranteeing that your guests will want to come back
