There's A Book

Bang! Boom! Roar! A Busy Crew of Dinosaurs by Nate Evans and Stephanie Gwyn Brown, Illustrated by Christopher Santoro

What’s that
Bang!
Boom!
Roar!?

A busy crew of dinosaurs!
Engines fire, swing that hammer,
Cover your ears—it’s quite a clamor!
But keep those eyes open wide,
Because the alphabet hides inside.
Find each letter—wait, there’s more!
Big trucks, cool tools, and surprises galore!

Cool hard-hat dinosaurs jam-pack this rhyming alphabet picture book by New York Times bestselling author Nate Evans and Stephanie Gwyn Brown, brought to life by Christopher Santoro’s hilarious and energetic illustrations. Kids will love looking for the hidden letters on each page and finding the visual jokes that lead to a supersilly surprise ending. Construction work may be tough, but even dinos love a little monkey business!

Obviously I’ve been living in a cave for the last few years because Nate Evans is a huge author/illustrator I’ve never even heard of. He has nearly a dozen fantastic picture and chapter books including the Beast Friends Forever series, Mixed-Up Zoo of Professor Yahoo and Ponyella that was co-written with the author of the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series, Laura Numeroff. Bang! Boom! Roar! A Busy Crew of Dinosaurs is a brand new release that I’m sure will have dino and construction fans excited about reading again and again. I’m not a huge fan of the narrator for the book trailer, but it does give a very good picture of what to expect within the pages of Bang! Boom! Roar! A Busy Crew of Dinosaurs:
