1 post | 1 read
Two dinosaurs whose species are sworn enemies want to become friends in New York Times bestselling author Mo O'Hara's prehistoric spin on Shakespeare.In this hilarious take on Shakespeare for children 4 to 8--with dinosaurs instead of people--Romeosaurus and Juliet Rex get along perfectly well until they realize that their families should be mortal enemies!"Your family would eat mine," says Romeosaurus, who comes from a family of herbivores. Yes, it's true--Juliet Rex's family are carnivores, and Romeosaurus's family are plant-loving herbivores.With two families up in arms (very short ones for Juliet Rex) the two friends run away, determined not to let family baggage determine who their friends should be. With this funny take on the world's most cherished love story, Mo O'Hara transforms Shakespeare into a relatable and truly funny dinosaur romp for young readers. Coupled to perfection with Andrew Joyner's expressive and classic illustrations, this tale will get giggles while introducing the most beloved writer known to the world today.

I haven‘t laughed this much at a children‘s book since Diary of a Worm!

This was perfect! Great illustrations, witty text, and a satisfying retelling of Romeo and Juliet for dino-loving readers. Spoiler alert - this one has a happy ending 😊
