Originally written when my editor Bonnie Verberg (who started the Dino-sty as I call it) was let go by Scholastic. It was to be the last book in a multi-million copy world-wide series of picture books. My granddaughter Maddison, then age 24 wailed, “That’s my entire childhood, gone….!” Then cooler heads prevailed at Scholastic and so it is no longer the last of the dinos.

What reviewers have said:

  • “This humorous and heartfelt picture book from bestselling duo Jane Yolen and Mark Teague will teach young readers how to say goodbye with poise and grace — with laugh-out-loud antics along the way!” — YA and Kids Books Central
  • “This rib-tickling bedtime fare packs plenty of appeal.” ― Publishers Weekly
  • “Fans of any of the previous entries will rejoice at this new addition, which uses exaggeration and humor to help children acknowledge and deal with their dinosaur-sized emotions.” — School Library Journal
