Dinosaur is starting preschool today. ROAR! There are new friends to meet, dress-up outfits to wear, glitter and googly eyes to paste, musical instruments to play, and snacks to eat. What's not to like? But then, oh, no! It's Dinosaur vs. Clean-up Time! Fortunately, when friends work together, EVERYONE WINS!
With all the bright colors, bold lines, and toddler-like exuberance that have made the previous Dinosaur vs. books irresistible, DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL will both amuse and reassure anyone going off to school for the first time.

PRAISE FOR DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL
". . .Shea's concept of "winning" at school clearly has to do with self-confidence, determination and, sometimes, teamwork-a winning idea indeed."
—Kirkus ReviewsPRAISE FOR DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL
"Shea's frantic, colorful sketches . . vibrate with toddler energy. Children who have come to trust Dinosaur's perpetual, collaborative victories will welcome his comforting message about heading to school for the first time."—Booklist OnlinePRAISE FOR DINOSAUR VS. SCHOOL
* "School is no match for Shea's rambunctious, ever-confident red dino, starring in his fifth picture book. Shea's illustrations are as unruly and imaginative as ever in this pitch-perfect, egocentric take on living (school) life to the max."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
