“When a boy brings his pet pterodactyl for show-and-tell, chaos reigns in the third grade… Have your teacher read this the day before show-and-tell: Any pet will be more than welcome… as long as it’s not a pterodactyl.” —Kirkus Reviews
When a boy brings his pterodactyl to school for show-and-tell, hilarious havoc ensues. The creature’s delightfully demented antics, the kids’ expressions as they try to avoid the hungry pterodactyl, and the out-of-control imagination of the boy yield a wild and wacky romp.
Written by Thad Krasnesky and illustrated by Tanya Leonello, Pterodactyl Show and Tell taps into the childhood wish to bring a dinosaur to school, allowing readers to safely enjoy the laugh-out-loud logical conclusion: classroom chaos. Kids who dig dinosaurs will devour this preposterous pterodactyl tale written in rhyming couplets and teeming with edgy school-age humor and giggle-inducing illustrations.
