by Tony Mitton Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

Shake, shake, shudder...near the sludgy old swamp. The dinosaurs are coming. Get ready to romp!

Where can you find a Deinosuchus that practically pirouettes on its tail and a T. rex that bounds gracefully through the air? In Dinosaurumpus!, where dinosaurs run, boom, shake, and shudder their way to the "sludgy old swamp" and rock the night away.

Tony Mitton's delightful rhyme and Guy Parker-Rees's whimsical illustrations will make children want to join in the dance while they learn about some of their favorite prehistoric pals. By the time the romp is over, and the dinosaurs are fast asleep, kids won't be able to shake that jumping, thumping Dinosaurumpus beat!
