The Adventures of Grandmasaurus -- by Caroline Fernandez
"Readers with embarrassingly rambunctious relatives of their own will moo-roar in sympathy." - Kirkus Reviews
The Adventures of Grandmasaurus features a quirky Grandma who magically sneezes herself into different dinosaurs while on a field trip with her two grandchildren. When Grandma starts behaving like a dinosaur the kids quickly learn this will not be a regular field trip! There is a world of adventure searching and identifying Grandmasaurus. This intergenerational tale also shows kids know best when it comes to proper behaviour at the museum!
