Theo TheSaurus: The Dinosaur Who Loved Big Words book coverWhen a big vocabulary leads to big confusion, Theo TheSaurus learns that there are some things you can say without any words at all! This story is Fancy Nancy for dinosaur lovers.

Theo TheSaurus is a little dino who loves words--the bigger the better! And he's determined to share that love with his new classmates in his new school, no matter that they don't understand him at first. But when a trip to the athenaeum (also known as the library) becomes a visit to the auditorium instead, and a suggestion to play conceal-and-search (or hide-and-seek) only earns him looks of confusion, Theo realizes that misinterpretations can actually just be plain confusing! It's only when his newfound friends find a way to show they care that Theo learns that sometimes, there are things more important than words.

In this sweet and funny book filled with bright art, a brand-new dino character, and a full glossary of big words at the end, readers have tons of fun--and learn some new words along the way! It's Fancy Nancy for the dino-loving set!
