What do a time-traveling stegosaurus, pirates, aliens, a hot air balloon, ponies, a volcano god named Splod, a bowl full of piranhas, and a bottle of milk have in common?
You’ll have to read Neil Gaiman’s madcap adventure celebrating fathers and the obstacles they must overcome to accomplish perfectly ordinary things – like run down to the corner shop and get some milk for their children’s cereal – to find out!
You’ll also find answers to Very Important Questions about life, the universe, and everything – questions like are we really living in the distant past or the near future? What are coconuts really called? And would the universe explode if you took something from the past into the future and let it touch the same thing in the future?

You’ll learn to make a variety of bows, even bows made out of wrapping paper. Not only will the gifts you give this holiday season be show stopping, your crafting will go up a notch as well.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to discover a dinosaur? How about a Tyrannosaurus rex? How about the very first T. rex ever found?
Barnum’s Bones tells the story of how Barnum Brown, the superhero of fossil hunting, discovered, excavated, and brought back the first ever discovered T. rex to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. There’s also tons of fun tidbits about Barnum’s childhood in Kansas (he had so many fossils in his collection his mom made him move them out to the laundry house), and his adventures early in his fossil-hunting career (Mountain lions! Shipwrecks! Giant spiders! Volcanoes!).
If you love dinosaurs, archaeology, and adventure, then this picture biography is definitely one to check out!
